Lis Anna-Langston was raised along the winding current of the Mississippi River on a steady diet of dog-eared books. She attended a Creative and Performing Arts School from middle school until graduation and went on to study Literature at Webster University. She is a Parents’ Choice Gold winner, a two time NYC Big Book Award winner, an Independent Press Award winner and a Moonbeam Book Award winner. Twice nominated for the Pushcart award and Finalist in the Brighthorse Book Prize, her work has been published in more than forty publications including: The Literary Review, The Merrimack Review, Emrys Journal, The MacGuffin, Sand Hill Review, Emerson Review and dozens of other literary journals.

The award winning Middle Grade author draws badly, sings loudly, loves ketchup, starry skies, fireflies, French hip hop & stories with happy endings, (a-hem, I mean) aliens. Very happy aliens. :)

Her new book hits shelves on June 2021.
