About the Author
More About the Author
So, in addition to writing, I've been working as a business strategy consultant providing support to small and large companies in strategic visioning, process re-design, and change management initiatives. Sounds pretty boring? Yes, it would be, if that's all I did. But consistent with my eclectic interests, I've also continued to write--eclectically.
At the request of my new business-owner clients, I recently published "Start Smart: Business-Building Lessons from a Serial Entrepreneur", which is available as an e-book on Kindle. I'm delighted with the response I've received from many up-and-coming entrepreneurs! I'm a "wealth voyeur." If I can't make a fortune for me, I do like helping and watching others do it!
Six years ago, I authored two award-winning books on the subject of leadership development: "Be the Horse or the Jockey: 110 Tips and Techniques for Followers...and Leaders" and "Pink Leadership: 15 Life Lessons for Women Leaders." Both books are enjoying long lives, and are included in several leadership curricula for colleges and at least one, progressive high school Honors program (that I know about.)
Four years ago, I co-authored a third book with Lisa Medford, who was the first nude showgirl in Vegas in 1957 and who is the subject of: "I Can Hear the Applause: Adult Language...Some Nudity." (This book has nothing to do with leadership development.) We recently signed an Authors Option Agreement with a theatrical writer who is preparing a stage production based on the book! (I've got my eye on a few dresses for the Tony Awards ceremony.)
My latest literary offering is a collection of my short-stories: "Heart-to-Heart and Other Tales of Love and Laughter." Seven of the 13 stories in the e-book were previously-published and five received prizes in literary competitions. (That means someone actually paid for this. What a novel concept!)
Other than all that--I'm just grateful that the sun shines (almost) all the time in Vegas, my dog Patches loves me, and my wonderful husband, Bill makes me laugh every day. Doesn't get any better than that!

Enjoyed the realistic view of Las Vegas and Hollywood and Lisa's humor throughout. She is one heck of a "survivor" and like Jackie, who was a gorgeous showgirl herself, stated Lisa remains a true, loyal and generous friend.
The author Jeanne Gulbranson captured Lisa's spirit and honesty which made this "showbiz" era realistic as Lisa unfolds her story.

What a fun read! I laughed and was amused at this little book with such big and wild stories. Written with wit and wisdom, I can only imagine this woman's real life. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Patty
I loved this book because I remember Las Vegas in the days that Lisa Medford writes about. She gives a real inner look to the behind-the-scenes life in the casinos and showrooms.Published on November 13, 2013 by Sandra K. Gateman
A good look at old Vegas. Wish it had more "mob" story's but hey some of those guys are probably still around. She had a full life, great readPublished on January 12, 2012 by John S. Reynolds
A great inside look at the world of show girls in Las Vegas in the 1950's & 60's. From the writing it seems like Lisa had a Hell of a good time working the stage.Published on June 7, 2011 by William G. Howes
I really enjoyed the book and it brought back a lot of
memories of how Las Vegas used to be. The costumes were
really beautiful. Read more
