Music, Art, Etcetera
Lisa loves to sing, and has been a part of a couple of fun and innovative bands: Mojo Project, which hit the So. California bar and club circuit in the mid '90s, and Mad Menagerie, which consisted of Lisa, her identical twin sister, and a few other extremely talented musicians. To the right are a handful of Mad Menagerie songs, posted for the personal enjoyment of others out there who also have a passion for the eclectic.

Because this process is so complicated, it can take up to a year for her to complete just one painting. Moreover, because all of her paints are water based, her finished paintings are each as delicate as they are unique, one splash of water being all it would take to destroy a year's worth of work.
Five interesting tidbits about Lisa, should the trivia ever become relevant:
1. Lisa used to be fluent in Ersa. The only other person who could at all speak, read, or write in Ersa was/is her twin sister. Sometimes they still use it when they chat long distance over the phone, just for fun, but otheir vocabularies in the language have waned significantly over the years. Quirefo pun visinifed? Take the Ersa challenge!
2. Lisa has a black belt in Shorin-Ryu style karate.
3. The most Lisa ever wrote in one day came when she was at the tail end of converting her novel, The Darkness and the Night, into a screenplay. She had overcome so many obstacles in writing the adaption, in many places laboring over my approach for days, only to write a page or two, that by the time she could see the light at the end of the tunnel and felt the need to keep writing until the piece was finished. She got over fifty pages written that night ... but she did not meet my goal, too exhausted to continue, winding up finishing the last few pages after a nice, long nap....
4. Lisa is an avid animal lover. Her screenplay "Pet People" is based on her experiences many years ago, working at a small mom and pop pet shop. The animal character "Princess" is based on an exceptionally smart rottweiler she helped to train.
5. She once sung the National Anthem for the opening of a Major League Baseball game.
