Greetings! I’m Lisa, and I am a twenty-two year veteran in Christian publishing. My background as Sr. Acquisitions Editor includes two years at Howard (Simon & Schuster), ten years at Thomas Nelson (Harper Collins), seven years at Multnomah (Waterbrook/Random House), and three years as owner of Loadstone Literary. I am currently a proud member of Reedsy, a network of world-class publishing professionals based in the U.K. who help authors self-publish with great success.
I am creator of The Heavens Proclaim His Glory, a beautiful compilation of images taken by Hubble telescope paired with inspirational excerpts and quotes. I am also author of 100 Days of Faith over Fear and God’s Truth for Troubled Times, both published by DaySpring.
I’ve worked with bestselling authors/pastors such as Peggy Rowe, Max Lucado, Sarah Young, Charles Stanley, Billy Graham, David Jeremiah, Lee Strobel, Hank Hanegraaff, and many others. I’ve also worked with artists such as Josh Turner, Matthew West, and Steven Curtis Chapman, among others.
I specialize in devotionals, compilations, turning trade book material into gift book prose, as well as trade books of varying topics such as memoirs, parenting, inspirational true stories, and more. My expertise spans from the initial consulting stage through the details of proofreading, plus I have a vast knowledge of working with designers on four-color books with photos and original artwork.
I currently freelance edit, write, and consult authors who want to self-publish. The process is a joy, and I love helping others reach their dream of writing a book and leaving a legacy for others.
