In-between, she lived in Spain, traveled back and forth to an island, and had a successful career editing bestselling middle grade and young adult fiction, becoming known for digging into the bones of a story to bring out the best in it. All along the way, she kept writing.
Lisa lives in Belmont, California. She is Immediate Past President of the California Writers' Club, SF Peninsula branch, and Founding Editor of the Fault Zone Anthology series.
