Author Lisa Hess

Lisa Lawmaster Hess is a former school counselor and transplanted Jersey girl who is delighted to (finally) be a stay-at-home mom to her teenage daughter. Lisa writes both fiction and non-fiction and is the author of two books drawn from her work with her students: Acting Assertively and Diverse Divorce. A community blogger for WITF (Six Children and No Theories) and a contributing blogger at The Susquehanna Writers, Lisa's personal blog is The Porch Swing Chronicles. She completely (and unconvincingly) disputes the theory that teaching and blogging are simply ways to avoid revising her novels. Lisa is also the author of one novel, Casting the First Stone.
