Lisa Mahoney completed an undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin by writing a collection of short stories under the mentorship of Laura Furman, editor of the O. Henry Prize Stories. Lisa traveled extensively across Asia and earned her MA in Southeast Asian Studies at the University of Michigan before traveling again, this time to South America. After a long hiatus from creativity spent in international logistics and sales in Asia-Pacific and Latin America, she gladly returned to writing fiction.
She studies and practices at the writers workshop, Lighthouse Writers in Denver, and is a graduate of its Book Project, under the mentorship of William Haywood Henderson. Her first novel was completed in 2017 and she writes stories now.
