Exciting news!!!


I'm extremely thrilled to announce that Zondervan has just offered me a two book contract for my international suspense series that begins with Blood Ransom, the story about a humanitarian worker who has seventy-two hours to stop an assassination.

While every book I've sold has been exciting, this series is extra special as it combines my love for suspense and romance with Africa as a setting!

Last night Scott took us all out to a restaurant along the beach to celebrate with fish and shrimp. I'll be sharing more about the book and its journey to publication in the future, but will probably have to pinch myself a few more times in the meantime.

Blessings!

Lisa

  2. Lisa,
    I am so happy for you and proud of you! Through all of life's struggles you have pursued and your dreams have come true! I remember you telling me in high school that someday you hoped to be a writer. Your story is inspiring to my high school daughter who also dreams of being a writer someday. I know we haven't seen each other for years, but I still think fondly of you and love all the memories of growing up together at Columbia.
    Blessings!

  3. Lisa, what a fun celebration. You know our group is thrilled for you because we were some who read it first. :) And like your family, mine always goes out to celebrate a new contract. Although usually to Red Lobster and not at the beach. :) Your dinner looks exotically delicious. :)
