Lisa began weaving intricate stories inside her imagination from a young age, but these days her words find themselves bursting forth in the forms of flash fiction, short stories and novels.

When You Feel Too Much…

I can only connect deeply or not at all – Anaïs Nin


Sometimes you notice how intensely you feel everything,

you notice the small things: dust motes dancing in the light cast across your path,

a smile on the lips of a passing stranger,

or the depth of emotion that overwhelms you in the heat of a moment.

These are things the average person embraces momentarily,

but what if your brain records all of thi

“It’s those silly dreams that keep us alive.”
Lisa Shambrook

“You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.”
Saul Bellow

“They might not need me; but they might.
I'll let my head be just in sight;
A smile as small as mine might be
Precisely their necessity.”
Emily Dickenson

“I did not want to think about people. I wanted the trees, the scents and colors, the shifting shadows of the wood, which spoke a language I understood. I wished I could simply disappear in it, live like a bird or a fox through the winter, and leave the things I had glimpsed to resolve themselves without me.”
Patricia A. McKillip, Winter Rose
