                 Lisa is a member of the HWA and the Author's Guild.

        After her mother passed away, Lisa moved to the spooky old house she grew up in. Her mother hangs around on a daily basis, providing a kind of benign haunting.

        Anne’s spirit freaks out the twin cats, Harry and Theo Houdini, but Lisa considers her mother’s presence not only inspirational,  but extremely helpful-- especially when Lisa can’t find her glasses, her car keys or the checkbook, and Mom transports whatever the hell Lisa was looking for onto nearby counter-tops or inside Lisa’s purse.
