Welcome to Lisa’s Lair aka my blog!!!

If we’ve never met before, I’m an author. I write dark paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and short stories. I’m also a Mom and a Disney fanatic!

We’ll be making our annual Christmas pilgrimage to Disneyland on Saturday! I can’t wait! They decorate the entire park, and at night they have fireworks and make it snow on Main Street!!! I love it… J












This has been a huge year in my life. In 2011, my debut novel, Night Walker, was released….

He gave up his soul for a second chance to love her…

Two and a half centuries ago, Calisto Terana lost everything when a zealous priest murdered the woman he loved. Now, desperate for another chance to love her, he wants redemption for the mistake that cost her life.

She’s haunted by dreams of her own death…

After catching her fiance with another woman, Kate Bradley returns to San Diego to clear her head. The last thing she needs is romance, but after meeting Calisto she’s drawn to him in ways she doesn’t understand.

They’ve waited in the shadows for centuries…

Calisto has no doubt Kate is the reincarnation of his lost love, but the Fraternidad Del Fuego Santo has a new watcher with dark ambitions of his own. As old enemies reemerge and a new threat arises, the betrayal that enslaved Calisto to the night might destroy the only woman he’s ever loved again.

 And before the end of December, my new short story Anthology, Forgotten Treasures, will be available in eBook and paperback! J

Spooky tales told while huddled around a campfire.
Memories of “the good old days” shared by grandparents.
Alien invasions by flashlight, under the covers, after bedtime.

Short stories are like Forgotten Treasures you find in a trunk in the attic, just waiting to be discovered.

Inside this book lurks a Christmas loving demon, a pirate ghost who becomes flesh only one night a year, and an ancient Egyptian god who longs to be a god of rock-n-roll.

These tales, and many more, are anxious for you to open the cover and dust them off.

Looking ahead to next year, I have another novel and a novella to be released, so it’ll be a busy year, but I feel so blessed to be able to write stories and share them with readers all over the world. I’m very lucky and grateful to everyone who takes a chance on a new author…

Thank you so much for reading!!! You Rock!!! J

    P.S. Enjoy Disneyland! We’ve been going to the Parks on this coast since early November… The Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Studios, EPCOT, their resorts, Universal Orlando and Islands of Adventure… we’ve been busy! This weekend we’re hitting DisneyQuest and Downtown Disney AND Fort Wilderness Lodge & the Fort Wilderness Lodge Campgrounds (the campers are known for going all out decorating their campsites… Halloween there was beyond awesome).

  • I’m so jealous of your Disneyland trip. I’m hoping to go with my (grown) kids right before Christmas. How was it??? I’ve never been during the Christmas time and I’m chomping at the bit this year. Anyhow, congrats on all your incredible accomplishments this year; may 2012 keep filling your life and heart with abundance.
