Image may contain: 4 people, people smilingMy name is Lisa Marie and I’m a storyteller.

I read and write novels, short stories, poems, blog posts, screenplays, and short films. I even co-wrote a short film that played at a film festival, and wrote and directed another.

I’m obsessed with movies. I love going to the movie theater by myself so I don’t have to stress over anyone trying to talk to me. I get butterflies in my stomach when a movie begins. There is so much possibility in whats about to happen. And I think of the same thing every single time:

I love story.

I’m also a wife, adoptive mama,  former foster parent to 40+ kids,  homeschooler, writer, and previously stuck creative.

I know what it’s like to have so many ideas I don’t know where to start, or to have fear stop me in my creative tracks. It still happens, but now I know how to deal with it so I can finish my projects.

Join the Creative Rebel Tribe and be a part of something truly fantastic.

anything fun. Be grateful and kind. Less is More.
