Lisa became an author when she was twelve years old when she self-published her first book. She typed the story on a manual typewriter, illustrated it with crayon and pen, sewed the binding on her mother’s sewing machine, and bound the pages between two pieces of cardboard covered in red feed-sack material with white polka dots.

Now, Lisa is the owner of Stumptown Publishing, LLC, a small independent press founded in 2007. She published Two-Lane Livin’ Magazine for ten years.

Lisa holds degrees in Creative Writing, English, Journalism, and Liberal Arts. She is also the author of several books, including three collections of essays and an on-going spiritual book series.

In addition, Lisa writes a regular column for her local newspapers, offering readers a glimpse of a busy rural life. She records essays for the library’s Dial-A-Story program and serves on the committee for the Little Kanawha Reading Series. She creates lessons and handouts for her online and in-person students and occasionally dabbles as an artist.
