About Lisa

I am a former publishing executive with over 25 years’ experience in the industry as both an in-house editor and as a freelance editor and writer.

As well as spearheading four publishing startups with $2 million to $17 million dollars in growth, I have simultaneously run my own successful business, Editorial Services of Los Angeles (ESOLA), which has worked with hundreds of writers get submission ready, traditionally published, or self-published.

Not only have I published over 100 children’s books, I am the lead author on Amazon’s bestselling Writing Children’s Books For Dummies (Wiley, 2005, 2013, 2022), and I co-wrote the New York Times bestselling adult nonfiction hardcover, Fund Your Future with Julie Stav.
