Lisa’s writing began as a result of a sea change. She left her job as a literacy consultant in Sydney, Australia, and moved north to Sapphire Beach. She joined Coffs Harbour Writers’ Group in 2011 and started writing for the first time in her life.
In 2014, Lisa completed her first feature screenplay, Still Life, a character-driven family drama. In the same year, Still Life was selected as a finalist in two US writing competitions and was nominated for two awards.
In 2015, Lisa completed The Curse, a mythological drama based on the book The Curse of the Minotaur: A Tale of Ancient Greece by Tom Stone. The Curse has also had some recent competition success.
Lisa is a former literacy consultant, dance director and teacher. She recently left Australia and set off on a travel adventure with her partner, Ion, a poet. To date, Lisa and Ion have spent most of their time in Greece. They intend to write and continue their travels indefinitely.
Lisa is currently working on her third feature, a romantic drama. She will miss Coffs Harbour Writers’ Group and its members who supported her in her first terrifying attempts at writing.
