About Lisa

My essays have appeared in The Denver Post, The Huffington Post, The Dallas Morning News and Dallas Child Magazine, penned under various pseudonyms. I am one of 40 contributors to Laugh Out Loud, a humor anthology from the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop which publishes in April 2018. Once upon a time ago, my confession about being a word addict won me a coveted page in Writer’s Digest Magazine.

Any Texas Longhorns here? I earned my degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin in the mid-80s. I began my career as a TV reporter in west Texas before striking it rich in Dallas as a freelance writer and marketing professional. (Rich is herein defined as being able to raise four kids on a shoestring budget and three of them got braces.) Without a doubt, my family is my greatest source of joy, worry, and writing prompts.

I now live in Colorado where I flunked ski school at the age of 50, but if I put my bifocals on, I get to enjoy a spectacular mountain-view from my front porch every single sunshiny day.
