The Devil takes a Holiday


I’m bored! How is it possible that I, the ruler of the underground, me - Satan - the Devil aka - Prince of Darkness, is bored? I’ll tell you why…. Mistdreamers and their meddling! Yet again, they defeated my demons in battle. 

How is this possible? Three young women against my demons - it is unbelievable and more importantly, unforgivable. Someone will pay for this and as the demon prince Lucias has gone into hiding, my next target will be my friend Flauros.

He will explain this catastrophe and if he cannot, then there is a special place in hell waiting for him! The Devil takes a holiday after he hears the abomination that was the Mistdreaming war and decides he has to go to earth to correct the wrongs done to his demons.

His vacation will begin in Glencoe, where the battle began in 1692, he will meet with the Laird of the McDonalds…. Best laid plans always go awry and as he plans his vacation, the archangels Omniel and Ambriel decide to make his journey a very different one.

Lisanne Valente

Lisanne is an Edinburgh born author, she is of Scottish descent but her ancestry also includes Italian, German and Irish

She grew up in Edinburgh, within a close knit family which included, her parents, brothers, Mark, Harry and sister Morag. She includes all of them and their children in many of her books.

Friends, family and some neighbours from her childhood days will also find their names appearing at one point in her books. It is Lisanne's way of thanking them.

She is married to Paul, her best friend and her rock whom she met at Primary school, and they have three grown up sons and a wonderful daughter in heart.

Lisanne loves to travel and has seen many countries in Europe. She has visited several states in the US including Alaska, Florida, New York, California, Mississippi, Arizona and Nevada and she looks forward to spending more time visiting the other 43 states. She hopes, one day, to visit Australia and New Zealand, hopefully sooner rather than later!

Her love of reading and writing was instilled in her at a young age and both her parents and sister encouraged her vivid imagination.

Her family are the force encouraging and supporting her to continue writing.

In 2019 she was invited to attend Comic-Con San Diego, an achievement she had sought for a few years. Her new novella The Devil Takes a Holiday, was published in 2019 and is currently in the process of becoming a graphic novel. Original works of art, from the graphic novel, were going to feature in the show. Sadly, the world and a virus put her attending on hold until 2021. Her second novella To Ride a Cock-horse will be published in the new year.
