Hello! I’m Lisa and I have just published my newest novels: A two book series — A Midlife Romance — the unexpected story of a sexy, precarious romance – and highly relatable to anyone experiencing a messy and meaningful midlife transition.

“Bravo on creating a romance story that succeeds on multiple levels, including as a sexy novel about real, grownup people figuring out who they are and how to be happy.”

Your stories are well written and moving…The collection is so powerful…It needs to be in the world for others to read.

This is the book for us, ladies, it has arrived.

Awake and Second Chances are sooo good!

Second Chances delivers a sizzling hot story with plenty of opportunities for readers to see the chemistry between the two characters.

This second Midlife Romance book is just as delicious as the first, and I love that these characters are so relatable… I was completely invested in the couple.


I’d love to hear from you about your own midlife transformations.
