A former middle school counselor turned writer, Lisa Batten Kunkleman is also a closet genealogist and preserver of stories, who looks for the humor in life. She spends a great deal of time letting her dogs in and out of the house while working on her upcoming book, Just Because I Used To Could…Life Stories and Beyond. She publishes regularly on her blog, which sports the same name. www.lifestoriesandbeyond.com
Lisa has written stories throughout the years, from back before she developed stretch marks, to the present, when she’s embracing age spots, gray hair, and wrinkles. Lisa hopes that her stories will provide entertainment, as well as information for folks in that situation called life. Lisa also hopes you enjoy her blog enough that you might consider recording your own day-to-day life.
Lisa is the mother of twenty-two-year-old triplets and her original model, a married twenty-nine-year-old daughter, and is now the doting grandmother of a smiling little boy, Wesley. Lisa and her husband Dan, now fourth-year, empty-nesters, live on a farm tucked away near Charlotte, NC. Surprisingly, their adult kids flutter in and out of the empty nest, often bringing friends, a spouse, baby, and four-legged grand pets for extended visits. No problem. Bring ’em on. Lisa and Dan have two dogs, a cat, and two horses already so what’s a few more critters. It’s all life stories.
