Lisa's Lair

Howdy everyone –

During the past week or so, two author friends of mine, Bella Streetand Casey Wyattwere kind enough to award me the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award!!!

Now I’m supposed to share 7 random facts about me, and choose a few more deserving award winners. Since many of my blog friends run “Award-free” blogs, please don’t feel obligated to accept the award. I promise I won’t be hurt if you let the award pass right on by… J

So ready for my 7 random things? Ready or not, here they come…


1) I got a pony for Christmas in the 70’s and I changed her name to Wildfire just like the song by Michael Martin Murphy. (I wore out that record I loved that song so much! LOL) PS – Wildfire was the best pony ever…

2) I wrote my first short story in kindergarten about a big ugly giant who was really friendly. 

3) When I was between the ages of 3 and 6 years old, I was so terrified of car washes that I would verify with the adult driver that we were not going to drive through a car wash before I entered the vehicle. PS – Proud to say I drove my car through the car wash over the weekend… I’m cured! LOL

4) I chomp gum while I write. Usually trident bubble gum is my favorite. PS – I’m chomping on some now!

5) I rant at ATMs when they tell me there’s a fee…

6) I cry every time I see the movie trailer for War Horse. Not sure there is enough Kleenex for me to see the entire movie! J

7) I hate writing about myself and I’m already worried that this blog is completely dorky and boring…

Ok I’m passing the blog award to some Sweet Bloggers who always make me smile…

One last thing… This weekend some sort of cloud of sad blueness huddled over me and my computer keyboard and lingered into Monday. Not sure why, but I had a really tough time shaking it. But today, out of the blue, two different readers contacted me about how much they enjoyed Night Walker and are looking forward to Night Demon. I’m sure they had no idea how much their words touched me when I needed to hear them most.

Thanks for reaching out and parting the clouds for me.

Kind words really do make the world a beautiful place….



  • Congratulations, Lisa! You are truffle-center sweet 😉 I don’t know where you find the time to keep up with how everyone’s doing, but you do a wonderful job at it. Sorry you got the bluesies. I guess everyone gets them now and again, but I’m sure the powers that be decided to bring your good, encouraging karma back to you.

    • Thanks Angela!!! Isn’t it a delicious looking blog award? LOL

  • Lisa,
    You are the rare person who actually GOT a pony in theirchildhood. We all wanted one. How cool is that?

    Also, are you going to sue those who stole your Shrek idea?

    And you must be extra sweet if you were awarded TWICE, but then we all know that 🙂

    • Hee! I did get a pony, but my stepdad was a horsetrainer so I grew up on and around all sorts of horses… 🙂

      And I never thought about SHrek! You’re right! LOL

      THanks for the award chica!


      Lisa 🙂

  • That picture of you on Wildfire is so cute that I’d frame it and hang it in my office! You are the sweetest blogger ever, and I’m so glad your readers brightened your day. What a wonderful thing. 🙂

    • Awww thank you!!! I have lots of cute Lisa on horse pictures around but I haven’t scanned them into the computer… This was the only one I could find! LOL

      Did you notice I passed the award onto you? So ‘fess up your 7 random things! LOL

      Thanks for commenting!

      Lisa 🙂

  • I love those facts about you! I chew gum when I write, too. LOL. Congrats on your “sweet” award. I can’t wait to see what the bloggers you’ve “awarded” have to say. Too fun!

    • You’re a gum chewer too??? So what’s your goto flavor? 🙂

      Thanks for commenting Melissa! I’m anxious to read the other bloggers’ random things too!


  • You are the first person I’ve ever heard of that actually got a pony for Christmas! Love those random facts.

    • Hi Marianne!

      I actually grew up on a horse ranch so I was always on or around the horses! 🙂 But man did I ever love my Wildfire!

      Thanks for commenting!

      Lisa 🙂

  • Congratulations! I love the pony. And I get all teary at War Horse previews too. My kids think I’m weird. Glad those Monday morning blues are gone!!

    • Thanks Casey!! And thanks for the yummy blog award too! 🙂

      Lisa 🙂

  • Those were great fun facts about you. I know that song. I nearly looked it up on iTunes, but I feared it would end up getting stuck there for the rest of the week, so I didn’t. 😉
    I’m sorry to hear that you were blue, Lisa. We’re living the dream, being writers. People are reading our words on a daily basis. Feel better! Ok?


    P.S.: Chances are sometime this year I will need you to repeat those words back to me. 🙂

    • Hi Jimmy –

      THanks for the kind words! I am feeling better… 🙂

      I’ll definitely keep them handy in case you need to hear them later this year…

      Thanks for commenting!

      Lisa 🙂

  • Congrats!

    Wildfire was a cutie.

    • Awww thanks Melanie!!! She was the best! LOL 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  • I can definitely relate about writing about yourself. I to think ‘do people really care to know this much about me?’ ha ha ha You deserve the sweet award!
