Lisa Murphy-Lamb began her career as an elementary teacher, inspiring young students to put words to page. Then one day in her jam-packed grade 5 classroom, Lisa realized that she could trade in the life of a teacher for the glamorous (and silent) life of a writer. So she did. But not before she moved cities, went back to university and began her family. When not writing, Lisa spends her time hanging around writers as the Director of Loft 112, a creative space for writers in Calgary's East Village.
