"Like the wild poppies in Lisa Alpine's moving story Rada's Bloom, may these tales take root in your garden, blossom and thrive.

The most frequent question Lisa gets asked is: Where is your favorite place in all the countries you have visited? The answer to this question is on page 39 of her book Exotic Life: Laughing Rivers, Dancing Drums and Tangled Hearts.
Writing projects she is currently working on include a story collection to raise money for the Marine Mammal Fund titled The Blue Eye: Encounters with Whales and Dolphins and an embellished historical nonfiction titled Wild Blood: Horse Thieves and Whores about her renegade birth parents and their Gold Rush roots. On a completely different track, Journey Into Movement: Dancing Lessons From God, will be a book about the body-wisdom she has gleaned from twenty years of teaching dance as an ecstatic and healing art form.
You can read many of her stories about writing and dance on her blog.
