The Park Family: Valerie

The Teacher


The continuing saga of the Park Family, Valerie follows on from her cousin Lauren’s story. Valerie Chisholm is a teacher with a difference... She is a Mistdreamer. Valerie and her cousins, Lauren and Mairi, were hidden by their parents from Ambriel, the angel of communication. They wished a life of normality for their daughters and purposely avoided registering them in the Angels’ Book of Mistdreamers. This oversight has now cast them into a world of danger and fear, exposing Valerie to the evil machinations of the mad demon, Lucias. He will stop at nothing to have her, even if it means destroying all she knows and loves... Each of the three Mistdreamers has been allocated a personal guardian, a member of the Infidelibus – angels, sworn to protect all Mistdreamers. Prince Seere, a demon prince of Hell, has been assisting the Infidelibus in their struggle to prevent another War of Angels and has been given the task of being Valerie’s protector. Seere is not all he appears to be, but he has made a vow with the angels to protect Valerie. His only recourse is to take her to a world he has not entered in centuries and hope that the Queen of The Fae will grant him safe passage! Join Valerie as she discovers the astonishing truth about herself. Go with her into Mistdream as she wanders through the realms and walks... with the angels. The Park Family:?Valerie, like Lisanne’s first book, will appeal to readers of romance and fantasy. Lisanne takes inspiration from Harper Lee, J.R.R. Tolkien and Diana Gabaldon.

The Lost Angels
A trilogy that reintroduces us to three Fallen Angels, sworn to protect Mistdreamers, and who now find themselves in a very unusual circumstance.

It was fast paced, and I think Valerie passes out too much, but it was still enjoyable.

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.
