Born and raised in Texas, Lisa is happily married and lives with her husband, two amazing children, Jingles Wigglebottom (the wonder dog), Cash (the Chiweenie), and Socks (the world's laziest cat). Since learning to put crayon to paper, all Lisa really ever wanted to do is write. After years of keeping her writing to herself, or sharing with family and friends, Lisa decided it was time to "put up or shut up".

In June of 2012, Lisa uploaded her first ebook, McKenna's Prayer (McKenna's Haven, Book 1); the story is one of love, friendship and above all, realizing that God's plan for us is always best.

Since then, I've been mentored by a wonderful writer, Lena Nelson Dooley, who's taught me so much, along with the other members of her critique group.

The downside to that is, it takes me longer to write a book these days that I feel is the kind of quality work of which I can be proud. I feel I owe it to my readers to write the best stories I can while keeping the work clean and the words strong.

Having said that, I'm working on a novella for a collection and a full-length novel that I hope to publish in the fall. That one is a little different for me as there's a lot of suspense. It's still Christian romance (I can't NOT write romance, lol), but lots of mystery. At least, that's my goal. So prayerfully hoping for a fall release for that.(less)

It's "Just" Romance ... or Is It?

Okay, after spending a lot of time reading about a certain romance author (I'm not naming her here, because her 15 minutes of fame should be beyond OVER ) I'm weighing in on the topic. Because here's the thing:

She's wrong.

Everything about her actions is wrong, from filing for a trademark on a commonly-used word, to sending cease and desist letters demanding other authors change the names of th... Read more of this blog post »
