Lisa M. Orban
Lisa Orban was born in Galesburg, IL a long time ago on a hot summer day. Due to various shenanigans by the adults in her life, her time in Galesburg was short and the family moved to Quincy, IL where they settled down for a good long stay.
Things were rolling along for a while inside the confines of Quincy, and Lisa rolled with them. There were several divorces, marriages, different schools, friends lost & gained, and many, many moves throughout all this activity. Until, quite unexpectedly, Lisa found herself in foster care at 16, much to her surprise.
Upon turning 18, Lisa ran away as fast as she could to Phoenix, AZ where she lived for 3 years. Got married, had two sons, made many mistakes, and then eventually, ran for her life back to Quincy, where she still lives to this day.
Lisa went to college, earned an Associates in Psychology, raised her 5 kids, got married, and divorced, several times, bought a house and eventually settled down to live the life she wanted, as the ringleader in a madhouse of anarchy. She now writes books, started a publishing house, takes in human strays in need of help, travels, and pretty much does whatever she wants, and is quite happy about it.
She became an author in 2015 with her first book, It'll Feel Better when it Quits Hurting, and hasn't stopped since. If you'd like to learn more about Lisa's misadventures in living, visit her website, The Talking Book with Lisa Orban .
