When she decided to publish her first children’s book she created Our House Publications. All 4 of her children’s picture books and her first novel, “Football Flyboy” (soon to be released this year), have been published under Our House Publications. In 2017 Lisa was honored with the Mom’s Choice Gold Award for lifetime literary excellence for her children’s book “Wings and Feet.”

On and at events Lisa donates half of her book sales to charities. She supports Mercy Ships, Mercy Project, and FSHD to name a few. It is the great work of these organizations and the relationships she creates with them that inspire her to give back.

Lisa’s other companies include Automotive Warranty Network and Our House Properties. She is the President and CEO of Automotive Warranty Network, a successful company with over 200 employees helping in excess of over 600 dealerships in North America. The company produces online training for dealerships, which Lisa serves as head writer and is on-camera talent for the videos. As for Our House Properties, Lisa manages 4 mountain properties in Breckenridge, Colorado.

When Lisa is not working she loves spending time with her 4 children and 5 grandchildren. It is her family that sparks inspiration for her stories. Her mind is constantly racing with stories that she immediately has to jot down. Therefore, a pencil and notebook are always on hand.  It is her true passion to tell the stories of others while revealing deeper meanings that encourage discussions for children and their parents.

Her hobbies include crafts with the grand-kids (she is currently teaching them how to sew), hiking in the mountains with her husband and dog Sophie, and researching her family history (by the way she is related to Pocahontas).

Wings and Feet: A butterfly and a boy adopt each other into a unique friendship where they learn to adapt to their differences turning it into a caring bond that will break the barriers of time to be passed on from generation to generation.

Arnold: The Cute Little Pig with Personality: Our first book, Arnold the Cute Little Pig with Personality is about our pet pig named Arnold. He was full of personality and everyone loved him especially as he sang little oink songs. He had one major problem, he loved to eat and everyone loved to feed him. He learned that veggies and exercise were good for him and that an occasional cookie was a real treat.

Bart's Escape Out the Gate: A child forgets to close the gate and his pet dino gets out causing a big mess. The child has to get creative to capture the dino and get him back in the gate. Then the cleanup begins to take care of what was broken because of the mistake the child made.

Wilhelmina's Wish: Wilhelmina had only one wish. She wished she didn't look like this. Fly along with Wilhelmina, a fairy with a unique uni-brow. She wants to change the way she looks, but it's not that easy. In this meaningful poetic story, your child will learn that one of the most important things in life is to be grateful with what you've got.


Lisa's presentation will vary based on the group of students and what project she is working on!

Link to share with students and their families to order Lisa's books:

Please make sure anyone ordering online includes the name of your school in the Notes section of the order and if they'd like to pick up the book from you at the school. Please DO NOT give a book to someone who says they ordered online unless they have the printed confirmation. PLEASE KEEP THIS! You'll need to include these confirmations when returning the leftover books so you won't be charged for them! If they do ask you for a book without a confirmation, just email us the name of the student and parent's name and we can check. DEADLINE: Online orders with SCHOOL PICK UP will only be available for one week after the school visit. Orders placed after that time will need to be picked up at one of our locations, or shipped.
