Lover of the written word, Lisa became an avid reader at a very young age; and hiding under the covers with a flashlight when she was supposed to be sleeping was a common occurrence. Nowadays, she falls asleep with reading glasses and a tablet on her tummy most nights, so not much has changed!
Being obsessed with Historical Romance, and after reading hundreds of books from the 17th to the 19th century, she was ecstatic to find out about Wattpad! Being new to the app, she began devouring story after story, and stumbled upon a great book, only to be devastated when near the end, she discovered, that not only was it not complete, but it had not been updated in two years!
Highly upset, and discontented by this, Lisa decided to finish the story in her mind. What else could a girl do? Afterward, she learned to look for completed, or recently updated books before reading them. However, this experience led to a thought that she tried to ignore, but it was a very stubborn thought that wouldn't go away!
"Why not write your own story on Wattpad," her willful mind chanted for weeks, and Lisa dismissed the idea as absurd and silly.
"I could never write a book. I wouldn't know how to write a book, and nobody would read it," she reasoned with herself.
Over the coming months, a story formed in her mind; a story so enchanting and exciting that she could no longer keep it locked inside. Deciding to be brave and share that story with others: Lisa found a passion she didn't know existed! A talent she didn't realize she had, and an unrecognized dream!
You never know what you're capable of until you try, and sometimes you've got to put yourself out there!
Fear limits the flight and will clip your wings, till you can no longer fly!
Faith in oneself will keep you soaring high.
You were born to be someone, so don't just stand by!
Take a chance on yourself, and you'll soon see why!
