About Us

Lisa Nardini


  • Lisa was born on a little island called Okinawa but did most of her growing up in the Ozarks. Always an avid reader, Lisa actually chose a reading class as an elective over art in middle school (don't tell Gina)! Her favorite books growing up were: The Wolves of Willoughby Chase,by Joan Aiken, Where the Red Fern Grows, by Wilson Rawls and all the books by Norma Klein and Judy Blume.  She lives in a small coastal town in Florida and enjoys kayaking in the Everglades. When Lisa is not writing, she is a flight attendant traveling all over the world. So be sure to look for her on your next flight!

Gina Nardini


  •  Gina was also born in Okinawa because she likes to copy Lisa.  She likes to read, write and draw. In fact, she created all the illustrations for The Underwear Dare under her married name, Gina Christoffel. As a child, her favorite books were; Where the Red Fern Grows and Summer of the Monkeys, by Wilson Rawls and all the books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. She loves dogs, especially beagles. When she's not writing, she is teaching visual arts at an elementary school.  She lives in a small town in the heart of North Carolina.
