Lisa-Marie has a weird accent - it's kind of English, with some Jersey twang and Scottish slang thrown in. That happens when you're born in England, move to NJ as a teenager and marry a sexy Scotsman.
She travels a lot. You'll find most of her favorite locations popping up in the fun, breezy, romantic chick-lit that she writes from the road. From 7:00am to 11:00am in many different time zones, you'll find her at the desk in a hotel room, on the balcony of an Airbnb, in the lounge of a swaying ferry, or in a coffee shop in an Italian village writing the stories she hopes that you'll want to read.
She's struggling with some serious empty nest syndrome since her daughter flew the nest, which is why she fosters lots of kittens when she is one place long enough. It doesn't help much.
Out of all of the jobs on my crazy diverse resume - from waitress, to cartridge sales, to voice-over artist, to actress, to systems analyst, to software designer to business owner - this one is my favorite. What could be better than spending the day telling stories! If you like fun, breezy unapologetic chick lit then you're my kind of girl. I give away lots of free stuff to loyal readers.
In 2006 I decided to create a business from scratch. I had $500 and a book on Yahoo Store Design. Eight years later I sold that business so I could start my next adventure (writing novels). I learned a lot along the way. Now I enjoy coaching women entrepreneurs and helping people become digital nomads through their own free-range business. I love speaking and have tons of juicy content that audiences love.
We dreamed that one day we would take our daughter out of school to spend a year exploring Europe. With careful planning and alignment with our Ultimate Whys, we made that happen in 2013 - but then we didn't stop. Now we live in The Bahamas, Florida, Scotland, Italy - and elsewhere. Follow our adventures on our travel blog and learn how to create your own Ultimate Life Plan.
