Lisa Vandiver - Author - Tupelo - Mississippi
Lisa has been working on a series (fiction) for SEVEN years - and is coming towards the end of it.
Quite obviously, there will be a sister series starting soon.
Lisa has worked in a Russian women's prison and an orphanage and we talked about the everyday needs of people, which are - the same as ours.
With a magic wand - Lisa would build a massive ranch and invite orphans to come and live in it. Together with summer camps and visits by star athletes and entertainers. I can't help but think of the health and safety hassle this would cause but we can dream.
Lisa would go to some medieval period in history. She said Scotland but I suggested Conisborough castle. (Pictured).
She plays video games (probably the only person I have come accross over the age of 15 that plays minecraft) and goes geocaching. If you haven't tried geocaching, it's a great way to waste a bit of time with family and friends in the fresh air.
Julia Roberts would play Lisa in a film
Her three tips are stop judging other people, love other people and much to my delight. Have fun.
