Lisa is recent MFA graduate from California State University Long Beach. She writes with a nod to the dark, the noir, and crime-ridden stories, channeling inspiration from iconic greats like Raymond Chandler and Jim Thompson, and modern-day authors, Paul D Marks, and Paul Brazill.
Her writing includes a series of short connected stories littered with a traveling band of nar’ do well thieves and screw-ups, rough around the edges, frayed, and flawed, tough talking quick quipped men and the women who follow them straight into the abyss. From San Francisco, to New Orleans, to Vegas, and more.
Lisa’s first novel is in the works, aiming for completion by December 2017. The story follows a twenty-something, transplanted girl from the midwest to sin city, who finds life in the desert sun a whole lot rougher than expected when caught up in the aftermath of a friends murder. For more on that score, check back for updates!
When not putting pen to paper she can usually be found out on the beach with her pups, Lola and Boo, throwing and chasing a Frisbee around. Or, at the local ball park, watching her favorite team do its level best to stay afloat. Go Angels!
