Lisa Tapp

Lisa lives outside Louisville, Kentucky with her wonderdog, Pooka. (Her three grown children are scattered across the US.) Her passion for writing surfaced early and was encouraged through every step of her formal education. She recently decided to pursue this passion toward a goal of publication. Her interest turned to YA following a visit to the Smithsonian "Bones" exhibit. "Finding Beth," her first YA manuscript, is set at the Jamestown Rediscovery site in Virginia. It's the story of a sixteen-year-old who confronts her issues of love and loss as she helps the ghost of an original settler search for the remains of his wife.
