Lisa Marie Long


A lifelong reader and writer, author Lisa Marie Long loves weaving words to entertain and enlighten. Twenty years ago, Lisa read her first historical romance, and knew she had found her calling. Creating compelling characters and making them fall in love is a wonderful job to have.

Lisa lives with her husband and two young sons in rural Columbia County, Oregon, the setting of her historical romance Borrowed Hearts. She is the secretary at a 1905 schoolhouse in the hills outside her hometown. A natural kid at heart, she loves helping to grow young minds and joking around with the kids.

An Oregon State University Master Gardener, Lisa has written 200 articles on home horticulture for the Extension Service, and was interviewed on Portland's KXL Radio on growing orchids. For some reason, people keep giving their orchids to her.
