“You cannot truly know yourself until you’ve dared to try everything that you said you never would.”

Lisa Di Nuzzo is a Detroit-born experience junkie, who began ticking away on a typewriter at the ripe age of five. She enjoys traveling and experiencing life in various places to gain a better understanding of the world, and the people who live within it. Her ability to empathize with the people she meets has given her a deep understanding of their psyche. She tried on many hats before dedicating herself to her lifelong dream. While working as a CELTA certified, ESL teacher in Verona, Italy, she wrote several short stories, skits, and songs for the purpose of teaching English in a fun and entertaining environment. She now resides in the Chicago area, where she spends her time writing and enjoying time with her family and friends.
