Greetings, all! Welcome back to Clockwork Conversations.
I'm your host, February Grace, and today's guest is author Lisa Fernow!
Let's start by learning a bit about her...
Lisa Fernow grew up on the classic mysteries of Ngaio Marsh and Elizabeth Peters. Dead on Her Feet is the first book in a planned series set in the tango world. Her short story, Death of a Tango Dancer, was featured in King County Library System’s Take Time to Read program in 2010.
Lisa has danced Argentine tango since 1996, studying with such legendary masters as Cacho Dante, Susana Miller, and Brigitta Winkler, and other inspiring instructors in Atlanta, Seattle, and Portland.
Lisa holds a BA in English and Theatre from Cornell University and a certificate in commercial fiction writing from the University of Washington. As a former Time Warner and PepsiCo global marketing executive, Lisa bowled with Michael Jordan, got sweat on by Cindy Crawford, taught capitalism to Hungarians and helped launch Scooby Doo merchandise into 150 countries.
Now living in Seattle, she runs a consulting practice focused on innovation, and loves toggling between business and fiction writing, as both require creativity and strong storytelling.
Q1: When you travel, do you like to plan every detail in advance, or are you more spontaneous and go where the days take you?
Q2: Do you enjoy any sports? (Watching or playing.)
Q3: What is your favorite space/room in your home?
Q4: What three items are always in your kitchen/refrigerator?LF: Champagne, milk for my morning coffee, and artesian cheeses which are often moldier than they should be. My refrigerator is very full right now with things I never eat and things I am afraid to open.
Q5: *bonus question for everyone* Do you collect anything? If so, why?
What a fantastic interview! Thank you again for joining me today, Lisa!
