Storytellers, like all artists, are keen observers. What they observe and how they process it depends upon brain wiring and life experiences.
In her writing, art, photography, and food explorations, Lisa endeavors to express the heart-centered beauty that she sees in the natural world and in the relationships around her.
She has been telling stories, in one form or another, since she could first communicate. Very early attempts at graphic novel writing landed her in the principal’s office at school. Her later pieces have been published in newspaper and magazine articles.
Work incarnations: professional photography, grant writing, local TV show production, book publicity, and recycling education.
Lisa earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing from CSU, Sacramento. She is a digital artist, research lover, book nerd, foodie, and introvert.
Book and short story genres: paranormal, sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction, horror, humor, and family life.
Writing themes: making mistakes, finding one’s place, and moving through difficult emotional situations.
