Lisa Lomax Douglass is a graduate of the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science, and Loyola College in Maryland, where she earned a Master of Engineering Science degree. She is a software development consultant for the United States Federal Government.
Lisa jokingly refers to her time spent in graduate school for engineering as a struggle. She fondly remarks about her undergraduate years of "blue book" essays - the measure of her application of political science theory - as easy compared to the discrete thinking required in software engineering. She laughs about her skill in writing reams of pages on a given topic, as it sharply contrasts her virtual inability to concisely express a statement in programming language. Even so, Lisa is a Systems Engineer and award-winning, Certified Project Management Professional.
Lisa's love of language arts started early. In fact, she studied Latin for five years in high school - a curriculum that included a full semester of Greek and German language studies. Those closest to her will say that Lisa is a true lover of storytelling and oral tradition. As the youngest grandchild, she is the keeper of the Lomax family history, applying her data management skills to research and illustration of her genealogical tree. What is most fascinating to Lisa is the lore that goes with each branch on that family tree. In her book series for children, Lisa tries to capture the spirit of her family lore while making the stories fully relatable to any child in any family.
Lisa Lomax Douglass is an enthusiastic, new author whose goal in writing is to convey the excitement she has for storytelling to others.
