"I was a late bloomer. But anyone who blooms at all, ever, is very lucky." - Sharon Olds. That favorite quote of Lisen’s describes her as well as she, too, is a late bloomer. Since she began writing in her mid-40's, she has gone back to school to get her MFA, won numerous awards, and has been published in Newsweek, Salon, the Utne Reader and many more. She is currently working on a novel about a woman stuck on bedrest trying to make peace with her life choices.
