Lisa’s nonfiction book credits include Celebrating Family: Our Lifelong Bonds with Parents and Siblings (Wildcat Canyon Press, 1999), and, as co-author, The Mother’s Companion: A Comforting Guide to the Early Years of Motherhood (Council Oak Books, 2001).
Born in Berkeley, California, Lisa still lives in the area with her husband, her dog Darjeeling, two grown sons close by, and a steady stream of sisters coming over to visit, cook together, and help tinker with the New York Times Saturday crossword puzzle, which is much harder than the Sunday.
Lisa loves wild freesias, the crispy shrimp tacos at Oakland's Cactus Taqueria, That ’70s Show reruns, miniatures, and natural fabrics with a little spandex in them. Her favorite composers starting with the letter “B” are Bach, Barber, Bartok, Brahms and Britten. Also Beethoven, owing to the string quartets.
