Lisa was born and raised in a small town in South Carolina. She and her husband, Mathis, have been married for 24 years and together they have one daughter, Alisha. Lisa graduated from Central Carolina Technical College, Morris College, and in December, 2016, she received a Masters Degree from Webster University in Educational Technology.
She began writing while attending a local college. She was asked by one of her professors to put into words what she thought the Bible meant to her and she wanted to be creative so she wrote her very first poem. And from there, her writing adventure began. Little did she know that this class assignment would be the what would prepare her to deal with what was to come later in life.
Writing for family and friends, and different events and occasions is where she shared her expressive words, but before it was all over, the reason for writing changed and developed into something more personal. She started writing for others but in the end began writing for herself.
Lisa published her first book, Expressions of the Heart, in April, 2016 with the Christian publishing company Pure Thoughts Publishing. She thanks God for the opportunity to share the gift He placed in her. She may have started writing later in life than most but God’s timing is always perfect.
