Lisa St John

In THE DEAD FOLDER: A TRUCE WITH GRIEF, I relate the story of how, as a young widow, I not only survived my husband's death but learn to live. I wanted a fairytale death from a broken heart, but things don’t always work out so well in fairytales.

I am a hard-working writer who is excellent at self-promotion. I write full-time, and I am devoted to promoting this memoir.

As a published poet and member of many writing organizations, I have good contacts.
