Lisa Betz writes from an empty nest perched on a wooded Pennsylvania hillside. She believes that ordinary women, even over-fifty introverts with no impressive credentials, can make a big difference. To this end, she tries to be a voice of hope, encouragement and occasional silliness in this often discouraging world.
Lisa has always loved stories, but didn’t consider herself a writer until she took a writing course on a whim. After years of dabbling, and much affirmation from writing mentors, she now takes her God-given skill seriously. Besides her historical suspense work-in-progress, she has written humor articles, drama sketches, and a full-length play.
In addition to writing, Lisa is a veteran Bible study leader with a passion for understanding the history and cultures of Bible times. She also enjoys reading, hiking, directing dramas, and baking decadent chocolate desserts.
