Author, engineer and ubran planner, Lisa Brideau joins the show to talk about a variety of topics ranging from writing tidbits, fave TV shows, the influence her job has on her writing, and much more.
LISA BRIDEAU (‘bree-doe’) was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada in the unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw People. Her writing is inspired by the ridiculous quantities of science fiction she read during her formative years with a crust of CanLit layered on top.
She has degrees in Aerospace Engineering from Carleton University and Urban Planning from the University of British Columbia and currently works as a sustainability policy expert. When she takes breaks from trying to prevent catastrophic climate change, she likes to write speculative fiction or practice her waltz. She lives in Vancouver, BC with her partner and their herd of cats. She is most likely cuddling a cat right now.
Here is the list of craft books she enjoys.
- Anatomy of Story by John Truby
- Reading Like a Writer by Francine Prose
- The Art of Subtext by Charles Baxter
- Consider This by Chuck Palahniuk
