About the Author
Born into a large sugarcane farming family in rural St. James Parish, Louisiana, Lisa grew up on the bank of the Mississippi River and on horseback. She spent her childhood riding in the canefields and on the levee that crossed the front of the family’s property. The youngest of eight children, her life was filled with unconditional love. She speaks highly of her childhood and close-knit family.
As a young woman, Lisa concentrated on raising her two sons. When her youngest was towards the end of high school, she entered the thriving Louisiana film industry. She worked in front of the camera before her interest in location scouting prompted her to move behind it. She soon worked her way up through productions to blockbuster films. After she scouted for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, 1 and 2, she moved into location management. When an injury sidelined her, she sat down to write. Superflare: The Fortunate Ones is the culmination of that endeavor.
A very happily married woman, Lisa and her husband John have a combined family of five sons and one daughter, their children’s spouses and, currently, fourteen grandchildren.

Held my interest from beginning to end. The interaction of the characters was amazing. This book made me contemplate what if !!
A book that makes you think about what really matters! A post apocalyptic situation that can happen today. I fell in love with all of the characters and the storyline. It felt so real. I can definitely imagine this as a movie or series. This situation could go on for years. Future dinnertime conversations will definately include survival skills!
