About Lisa

My essays have appeared in Purple Clover, The Denver Post, The Huffington Post, The Dallas Morning News, and Dallas Child Magazine, penned under various pseudonyms. I am a contributor to Laugh Out Loud, a humor anthology from the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop, and my love story is included in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Miracle of Love. 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 when we still wrote reports on typewriters using carbon paper. 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.
