I am collecting information on how to write a creative, professional bio.
I thought I’d start by writing my own…
Lisa Luciano is a wife, mother of eleven and licensed educator.
Besides the obvious, she has spent the last 30 years learning how to cook, craft, and juggle words with her ears.
Her first journal was a five-year diary. Here she chronicled her numerous daily snacks and boy crushes.
Though she still snacks often, Lisa now prefers penning witty poems and thoughtful devotionals.
Lisa says, “I became inspired to write poetry when a family friend invited me to collaborate on a book of limericks. It didn’t get published, but the process was exciting.”
Lisa’s talented younger sister, Sara Matson, has also inspired her to pursue freelance writing.
“Sara and I work as unofficial members of the apostrophe police. We snap photos of misplaced apostrophes and send them to each other.”
A graduate of Wheaton College, Lisa holds a B.A. in elementary education. This has taken her to an Asian refugee camp, the St. Paul Public Schools, and back home again. As a homeschool educator, she is finally learning world history and can locate Qatar on a map. She enjoys creating her own unit studies, spelling lists and worksheets.
Among other things, Lisa writes blog posts, rewrites articles, and adapts stories for young readers.
“A writer is just someone who writes. I am learning what I can do. I may never master certain types of writing, but I just want to enjoy writing and keep learning.”
