About the Author

At every possible level of play, Lisa Leslie was the most dominant player in women’s basketball. She led Morningside High School to two California state championships; at the University of Southern California, she was the Pac-10’s all-time leader in points, rebounds, and block shots; she played on the United States’ Olympic gold-medal-winning teams in 1996, 2000, 2004, and 2008; and, as a multiple MVP, she led the Los Angeles Sparks to back-to-back WNBA championships. As a tribute to her leadership and paradigm shifting talent, Lisa was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame and the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 2015.


But Lisa is so much more than an athlete: modeled for the Wilhelmina Agency, author of the memoir Don’t Let the Lipstick Fool You, television sports analyst, motivational speaker, entrepreneur, founder of several non-profit organizations, and former co-owner of the L.A. Sparks.


As if this weren’t enough, she and her husband, Michael Lockwood, are parents of Lauren and MJ.
