Biography :
A distinctive voice is a writer’s greatest gift yet travel-writing is often as soporific as a snooze by the pool. While never preachy, Lisa prefers real writing to pool-snoozing. At the heart of it all is respect for the story, wherever it lies. Follow her blog, Never Trust a Travel Writer, for a sense of the journey:
