Lisa Barker


I like to write romances with realistic characters and situations because "life happens." But, as messy as life gets, I like to see people overcome the odds, good win and love prevail.

My debut novel, Inheritance, brings two people together who do have rather messy lives. It takes a lot to get from A to Z, but nothing is impossible with faith, hope and love.

I also like to look at my life as a mom with humor and write about that. My Jelly Mom series, a collection of the best columns from 2004-2009, will be a 5 book series, the first and last being free.
