Cage spends her days inside the emotional walls she’s so carefully built as her only defense against old memories of rejection and abuse. Cage patches together a life out of an incompatible mixture of religious traditions and fleeting moments of physical contact, as she tries to ignore the emptiness inside.
Cage simply does not know how to let go of her past on her own. Then she meets Pyrs. From the beginning, their friendship allows Cage to escape the burden from her past experiences and choices that left her scarred and broken. But after lines are crossed during one emotional and eye-opening night at the beach, decisions must be made. Should hidden secrets be revealed or kept hidden?
Now that Cage has learned to trust Pyrs, does their relationship stand a chance? As she figures out her direction, Cage soon must face the fact that her voluntary cage may be a reflection of her strained and under-developed relationship with God.
This inspirational romance presents love with all its real-world faults. If Cage can just extricate herself from her self-imposed jail, she may just discover that her future is full of promise.

Uncaged Destiny is a must read! Don’t let the fact that it is a Novella fool you…this book is a powerful and poignant portrayal of love. Once you start reading, you will not want to put it down.

About the Author
From an early age, Lisa has had a love affair with books. She enjoys everything about books…their scent, weight and texture, but most of all…their words. Libraries and book stores quickly became her favorite places to escape into new worlds, travel to distant lands and see life through the eyes of each character. Her appetite for words spilled over into music, where the songs of country music artists exuding from her father’s speakers began the process of opening her eyes (and ears) to heights and depths of emotion and expression. Through her exposure to a variety of works, books, music, lyrical articulations and her own experimentation, Lisa has learned the power of words.
Lisa readily and willingly engages at the intersection life and faith in all its beauty, complexity and messiness. Looking back on the blanket of memories, woven together from her lifetime of experiences, Lisa strives to live transparently, where she no longer hides behind past mistakes. Lisa’s journey has taken her on a path leading to growth in her faith, and she utilizes her life events to encourage and motivate others to see how God is moving in their lives. She thrives on seeing others succeed, and channels that passion into community efforts, as well as being a listening ear to anyone who is looking for a very forthright but empathetic voice.
While holding down a full-time job and striving to maintain balance in her family life, Lisa finds an outlet for her creative expression through being a freelance writer, blogger and author. Her novella, Uncaged Destiny, is the first in a planned series looking at love and its interaction with faith and self-growth.
