Since leaving home at the age of eighteen, Free has traveled the country, trying to find a place to call home. Her travels afford a variety of experiences; from following the Grateful Dead, to waitressing in Chicago, to selling jewelry in New Orleans' French Market. But nothing seems to quell her sense of unrest. All the while, her estranged brother Alfie is in her thoughts. Once she finds him, perhaps she'll find her place. But can she avoid the snares of drugs and depravity long enough to do so?
For as long as she can remember, Lisa Litberg has loved to write. Over the years she has amassed quite a collection of short stories and poetry. Free is her first novel. Ms. Litberg has been a high school teacher for nearly twenty years and helps empower her urban students with the power of the written word. Currently she is working on a short story compilation geared toward urban youth, as well as her second novel, which will answer her readers' questions about what happened to Free.
