Author of Paranormal Romance

IMG_20140614_163359Born and raised in southwest Louisiana, Lisa has recently completed her first trilogy of paranormal suspense and romance set in her home state.

Her current work in progress is a spin off from the Coeur du Bayou Trilogy. Look for some familiar characters in the Spirit Catchers Series. More sweet romance and spine tingling tales to come.

Lisa still resides in the bayou state with her husband of 25 years and 3 children. After years of scribbling in note books while waiting in car lines, she is bringing those story ideas to life and sharing them with other readers and lovers of books.

I AM FROM
I am from flat plains of rich fertile soil
where rice, beans, and sugar cane grow.
I am from cypress knee laden swamps
alive with mysterious sounds.
I am from blue roof tops, plywood covered windows, generators
and emergency food when hurricane winds blow.
I am from crisp fall evenings warmed with chicken and sausage gumbo
and spring time boiling pots of crawfish, seasoned just right.
I am from wearing shorts in December trying to remember what snow feels like
and summer heat so sticky and humid it's difficult to breathe at night.
I am from candlelit masses to honor the dead
processions of children bearing flowers for Mary
and early morning rosaries prayed in French.
I am from Mass on Sunday
and unquestionable Faith handed down from my parents.
I am from simply celebrating life when there is nothing else to celebrate,
and the happy sounds of fiddles and accordions.
I am from large family gatherings, in joy and in grief.
I am from remembering our heritage and passing it down to our children.
I AM CAJUN.
