About The Indigo Quill

Hey there, I'm Lis Ann (that's pronounced like 'Lisa' without the 'a'). I'm the Youth Services Librarian at the Shelbyville-Bedford County Public Library. I started this blog in 2013 after reading the last book in a series I followed for several years and hated the ending. I won't name names (unless you look far enough on my blog), but thanks to this particular author, The Indigo Quill was born.

I began working in libraries in 2014 after a long, vigorous haul to be a music teacher landed me in English and Literature. Once I entered into the world of librarianship in Springfield, MO, my world gave a collective sigh and said, "finally. This is clearly where you were meant to be the whole time." True story.

This blog began as strictly book reviews, but as my career has taken off and I have morphed with it, I am now expanding onto helping my fellow librarians by sharing ideas and connections. You will still see reviews make their way through between the programs and library posts, but I invite you to follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook for more book-specific updates.

My other hobbies consist of painting, perfecting my herbal tea recipes, rockhounding, observing the cosmos, and hiking, kayaking, & camping as much as I possibly can. I also have a slight obsession with learning useless information that I will likely never use. I kill it at Trivia Night!

I have membership in the following:

  • American Library Association
  • Young Adult Library Services Association
  • Association for Library Service to Children
  • Tennessee Library Association (Legislative Committee and Division Rep for Advocacy)
  • Public Library Association
  • Friends of the Library
  • Writers Guild
  • The Mars Generation
Thanks for stopping by!
