Hiya! I’m Lisa from Oregon. I write humorous adult contemporary romance set in Scotland. Kilts, amirite? I try to distract you with some laughs then hit you with the feels. I’m a member of Romance Writers of America and am pleased to be serving as the Rose City Romance Writer’s president for 2017-18.
I love to craft (subversive cross stitch, knit, crochet, felt, make jewelry), binge crime dramas and true crime podcasts, and travel when my pocketbook allows. I’m a public relations pro with more than 15 years experience, specializing in social media strategy. And one of these days I’ll be finished with my master’s degree, focused on public archaeology.
I kicked cancer’s ass. NBD. Two back-to-back misdiagnosed UTIs led to a surprise! kidney tumor! situation. I’m happy to tell the story over a dram or gallon of beer. Wine too. Really anything. I celebrated my four-year remission in September 2017.
If you follow me on social media you’ll probably quickly learn I also love unicorns, rainbows, gifs, BuzzFeed listicles, and Justin Trudeau.
See that neato tartan scarf I’m wearing? That’s the official Clan of Archaeologists tartan. #randomfunfact
