Lise Gold is an author of sapphic romance. Her romantic attitude, enthusiasm for travel and love for feel good stories form the heartland of her writing. Born in London to a Norwegian mother and English father, and growing up between the UK, Norway, Zambia and the Netherlands, she feels at home pretty much everywhere and has an unending curiosity for new destinations. She goes by ‘write what you know’ and is often found in exotic locations doing research or getting inspired for her next novel.

Since the launch of Lily’s Fire (2017) she has written many romantic novels as Lise Gold, and erotic novels under the pen name Madeleine Taylor. French Summer (2018) and The Good Girl (2019) have won a Lesfic Bard Award,  Fireflies (2018) was a Goldie finalist, and Online (2020) has won a Goldie Award.

When not writing from her kitchen table, Lise can be found cooking, traveling or singing her heart out somewhere, preferably country or blues.
