Liselle Sambury

Hello!

Welcome to my writer and blogger website. I’ve been writing since I was thirteen as a hobby, always leaning towards the fantastic and fictitious. Once I got into my teen years I became more serious about my writing and finished my first, albeit not great, novel when I was eighteen. Since then, I’ve written two more full-length novels, my latest being VOYA CALLING, a YA Urban Fantasy.

I started my book blog under the name Lunch-Time Librarian in 2015 as a way to connect to the reading and writing community. Since then, I’ve made amazing long-lasting friendships and continue to periodically post.
