Lisa’s writing began with a sea change. After five years of teaching writing to teachers in Sydney, Australia, she moved north to beautiful Sapphire Beach and began writing.
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.
The following year, 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’ was also successful in several screenwriting competitions.
Lisa recently completed her third feature screenplay and a number of short scripts. She has also written short fiction, creative non-fiction, flash fiction and poetry.
In her other life, Lisa was a literacy consultant. She was State Dance Coordinator at The Arts Unit for three years. She directed and coordinated dance performances such as The Schools Spectacular, which is televised each year on ABC TV. Lisa has also worked as a primary teacher, special educator, autism outreach teacher, drug and road safety education consultant, and chicken factory worker.
Lisa is usually travelling and likes to spend most of her time in Greece.
