More About the Author
I have always had a love of reading and that fostered my interest in writing. My grandfather was the perfect inspiration to fulfill a dream of writing a book!
Since then, the writing has continued. I have two children's books on the market as well.
The Moose at the Manger is a children's Christmas book about Muse the Moose's magical journey back to that very first Christmas morning. Muse is in awe at seeing Jesus in the manger and is immediately surrounded by love. It is a fun story that keeps Christ is Christmas and shows the importance of a loving family.
Mark the Missing Moose is also a children's book. It was inspired by a parent of a former student. After her stepson committed suicide, she reached out to me to write a story about a child who loses something very important and has to cope with that loss. The hope for Mark the Missing Moose is for children to learn how to open up and speak to others about how they feel and what they are thinking. In this digital world, kids are "well-connected" but often are not saying much to one another. Follow Jimmy in Mark the Missing Moose to see how opening up and letting others in really helps him out!

This is not like the stories that we have heard so many times of horrific heartaches a child has endured because of a family member.
This wonderful story is about a grandfather, who lived and loved the way God intended grandpa's to be; sensitive, loving, and with a wonderful sense of humor.
I truly enjoyed Lisa's thoughtful and funny side as she shared with us, a time in her life that was filled with loving memories of a wonderful man that just happens to be her grandfather.
YOUR DING WOULD BE SO PROUD OF YOU.
