Hey there, lovelies!
I’m Lisa Holcomb and I write fantasy, non-fiction, poetry, and memoir. I fell in love with books on my mother’s lap, under the Nebraska stars, as she read from “Lord of the Rings” or “A Wrinkle in Time.” My stories and poems are all about families, both those we’re born into and those we’ve found.
Over the years, I have written for numerous blogs, newsletters, and poetry journals about growing up adopted, while living and parenting with chronic illness, finally combining it all into one blog here.
I live in East Texas with my engineer husband, three children, and two cats. When I’m not writing, you can find me doing fiber arts, helping train PTAs as the secretary of the Tyler Council of PTAs, running meetings of the East Texas Writers Guild (where I am president this year), teaching the Open Door Writing Group at the Tyler Public Library, working with other authors as member of the Pineywoods Critique Group, or cheering on the bands at Tyler Legacy High School and Tyler Junior College.
My first published short story will be available in the Next Chapters Unleashed: A Beachy Anthology. My first traditionally published essay will be in the the Boy Moms: Collective Tales of Mothers and Sons by Finn-Phyllis Press. And last, but not least, my first poem to be published – within the last twenty years – will be in the The Order of Us, a Moms Who Write Anthology.
