More About the Author
(The journey to Laos began with writing letters to someone in Papua New Guinea, and that is such a great story that I wrote a memoir about it - check out my latest book, a memoir, Love At The Speed Of Email).
In Australia, I worked as a forensic psychologist with the state police, in a maximum-security men's prison, and on a child death review team.
In Croatia, I worked with a development organization as a stress management trainer.
In Indiana, I earned a masters degree in International Peace Studies at Notre Dame University.
In Los Angeles, I directed the Headington Institute's training and education programs, providing psychological support services to humanitarian workers around the world.
In Laos, while my husband is hard at work for a humanitarian organization, I lie in a hammock by the Mekong River and drink mango smoothies.
At least, that is what I sometimes fantasize about when I'm busy looking after my first child, working as a consultant, or writing.
My latest book, Love At The Speed Of Email, was released in June 2012. It's a book that advance reviewers are calling "a modern-day fairytale" and a "travel memoir with a deep soul". Please take a moment to check it out, or to drop by my website and say hello. I'd love to hear from you.

Synopsis: Lisa lives a life many women would envy. Her nomadic childhood has morphed into a nomadic adulthood, which she's augmented with a formidable amount of education, all of which has added up to a successful career as a stress management trainer for humanitarian aid workers. On top of that, she's recently published her first novel. Though she holds both Canadian and Australian passports, she lives in Los Angeles--or does when she's not traipsing the globe as part of her job. As she turns 31, though, Lisa wonders if what she has is enough--especially as those closest to her are marrying, having children, settling down. Making homes. What does home mean? she wonders. Is it a place...or a person...or both? While she's asking herself these questions, an unexpected email arrives from an intriguing stranger--and together, they find answers to her questions that change both their lives.
From start to finish, I loved Love at the Speed of Email. In this thoughtful memoir, Lisa has proven herself to be an exceptional writer and a gifted storyteller. Her skill does not stop with the words strung deftly across the page. It continues into her exploration of human character and her razor-sharp insights of the human condition.
Lisa writes with bold authenticity and breath-taking vulnerability. She's candid about past romantic relationships, but even more revealing about those aspects of her persona that move and challenge and humble her.Read more ›
In Love at the Speed of Email is a memoir that reads like fiction. You will get caught up in the amazing, fascinating life that Lisa leads and how she came to know her husband and their usual courtship and marriage. I believe marriage through email works because before email I met and married my husband of 30 years though letters. It works and is a great way to find out about your future mate. Like Lisa and Mike we also had a short courtship and God has blessed us.
I find it amazing how some people can travel and live in a different place every few years or so and seem to enjoy it, but that's not for me. You will read many strange and exciting things that have happened to Lisa and how she got though them and moved on with her life.
God has blessed this couple and I know you would love to read their love story.
Lisa is a very witty person and will have you laughing at the strangest things. I'm sure she is a wonderful speaker and has her audience laughing and feeling comforted many times.
A book to read and one you will get simple enjoyment out of. I recommend this book.

Lisa's second book is part memoir and part love story.
Having lived in many places, Lisa struggles to find the meaning of the word 'home' while her work in humanitarian adds an interesting perspective.
The love story side is an incredible 21st century fairytale. It tells the story of how two people living in opposites sides of the world can be brought together through the internet. Exchanging letters for many months they shared dreams, worries and aspirations. What I loved the most is that Lisa has included some emails that Mike sent her, giving us the opportunity to get to know him a little bit too. It made me see them as real persons and root for them, hoping they would eventually meet and fall in love.
Lisa's book has inspired me to introduce two of my friends who live in opposite sides of the world!
