In 2011, after running new writing theatre companies for fifteen years, Lisa focussed once again on her own writing. She has recently been exploring her potential as a novelist - a new medium for her. In 2013 she completed an MA in Creative and Life writing as a scholarship student at Goldsmiths University. She is presently writing a children's novel Roots Corner. In 2012, The No Rules Handbook for Writers was published by Oberon Books.
