Author - Lisa Osina

Other works include Lucy’s Web and Op Hoop Van Zegen – A Dutch Steel Barge.  Moving was one of the pioneering novels to be published electronically becoming one of the first ‘e-books.’

Professionally, Lisa’s 35 year career in theater administration, publicity and accounting has provided opportunity and financial well being.  However, she says, “Life didn’t really begin until I reached 40.” 

After many years of self educating in the realms of spiritualism and shamanism, at 50, Lisa enrolled in a four year program of self empowerment and ancient sacred teachings.  Now graduated and ordained, she balances her professional career in public accounting and her spiritual practices with writing and creativity.

Lisa lives in Northern California with her husband, Ofer, two dogs, two cats and a ball python.
