Lisa Tucker published her first novel, The Song Reader, in 2002. According to HomeAndRecreation.org the idea for the book came out of an obsession she developed with the question of how different people relate and respond to songs. After obtaining a graduate degree in mathematics from Villanova University, writing novels would not be an obvious choice for most. Tucker, who also has a graduate in English from the University of Pennsylvania, was inspired to write by the same motivations that inspired her to pursue math. The Home and Recreation article went on to examine how Tucker brings the same desire for exploration and understanding of the human condition to all of her interests, including math and jazz, in addition to the novel writing she has made a career of.

Tucker has published five additional novels since her debut work. While her well-crafted writing has something to offer mature readers, the intended audience for all of her work so far is young adults. The post commemorating her decade long career speculates that young adults are the perfect recipients of Tucker's message of discovery. Tucker's desire to not only learn more about herself and explore more of her own world, but to share the experience with others and to encourage others to do the same, is evident in some way in each of her novels. The critically acclaimed author maintains a sense of freshness and wonder in her work that many authors lose after so many years writing professionally.

According to the Home and Recreation article further added Tucker examines the role of storytelling, both in her articles, and in math and jazz. Most people are not likely to associate jazz, fiction and mathematics, but in the life of Lisa Tucker, these three seem like perfect compliments to each other. As a field based on language and communication, mathematics involves storytelling at its very core. To a novelist like Tucker, the stories found in equations and proofs are just as beautiful and inspiring as the human stories told between the pages of books. As a jazz vocalist, Tucker is again required to be a great storyteller. Behind the microphone, Tucker charges the songs in her performances with all of her storytelling talents, to bring her audiences into the emotion and journey of each song.

Only ten years into her career, Tucker has seen enjoyed enough accomplishments to make most writers happy for a lifetime. Tucker appeared as a guest on the BBC, CBS' Early Show, syndicated cable TV and public radio. She been featured in numerous publications, and her work has been selected by even more numerous reading groups and book clubs.

The Winters In Bloom is the most recent work by Lisa Tucker.
