Writer Who Specializes in Content Editing, Ghostwriting, Memoirs, Freelance Writing, Articles and Blog Posts
Lisa Tomey has been writing ever since she took to the pencil, really getting a true taste at the age of 11 when she was inspired by her 6th grade teacher to keep participating in Creative Writing. Her class participated in an anthology of poetry and shared poetry in the various forms they had been studying.
While poetry is Lisa's favorite writing style, she has also written short stories, prose, memoirs, fiction and non-fiction. As a professional, she wrote plays for use in grade schools. She has also written many presentations and speeches for her work. Many years ago, Lisa was bitten by the puppetry bug and created puppets and wrote plays to present with her family at church and for herself to use in the local library. She is currently working on a book about creating puppet plays and including many of the plays she has written. As a college student, specializing in journalism, Lisa wrote for her college paper and illustrated her own and other's work. As you can see, writing has infiltrated about every facet of Lisa's life, early on.
Publications have included: Contributing Author to the former magazine The Tarheel, with the memoir "The Man Who Makes The Soldier," a dedication to her father CMSGT Max Tomey, USAF retired, who served on the USS North Carolina BB55.

Staring out and through the lens of a clear window pane, what confirmation have we that what we see is a reflection of the present and not the past mocking us…
I’d spent the entire day beginning 8:00 am searching the Greenwich Village area of the city, straight up 8th Ave to W 14th street; and wandering further, the immediate streets surrounding the Flatiron Building.
Pipe smoke gray sky served as blank pallet for seasonal storm clouds and had spread like a child’s finger painting, I didn’t like that they looked as if they’d come to stay; all the while questions riddled my brain silly – was I fooling myself.. was this an insane idea, a misguided attempt at self redemption.. who was I really trying to save?
The kid was a 30 year old adult who, in all probability, wouldn’t consider talking to me let alone accepting “life…
Rain for the many, many vegetable gardens I see posted! Tomatoes seem to be especially making an appearance this year!
2. Today is my birthday so I am grateful for 66 years of life and look forward to 66 more! Hey, a girl can dream! Here I am as about a one year old.
3. Friendships from writing experiences. People who became friends for life. We lost a good one and I celebrate Fred Tarr. I found out when posting a message to him about his book, my book of choice yesterday for The Sealey Challenge of reading a poetry book a day. I will be writing up something more about my dear friend, later.
4. Daughter got creative and made envelopes. She makes lovely cards. She has made so many that we have a surplus. I saw on Facebook where a friend made envelopes, so I suggested to daughter that she make some, too. She jumped right on it. She made the pattern from an envelope she took apart. Here is one of her envelopes. See how the inside pops! She used two sided paper.
5. I read 25 books in July. Oh yes, I did! And I am reading 31 books in August. The August books are poetry books. The July books were mainly non-fiction. I will probably post about my poetry book reading after all is done.
6. My godchildren have accepted an offer on their house. YAY!!!!
7. My good friend and sister from another mister was able to get moved into her new place this week. I am so happy for her as it has been a long time coming. Perseverance and all!
8. Sometimes I just want to pinch myself for all the wonderful blessings! I am going to be one of the editors for a publication, starting in September. It is an honor to be asked.
9. I have had another poem accepted for publication. With all the increased writing, I am surprised. There are so many people sending out their poetry.
10. Here’s the part where I have to ask…are you wanting to share your thankfuls? Well, we sure would love to hear your words. Supposing you would like to share, you can go to the blue link and presto-chango! You are going to a page where you can pop your link and share with us! Hope to see you there!
If we are going to name more essential employees, I think we need to add comedians to the list. We need humor now more than ever. Did you know that lots of comedians are out of work? They can’t do clubs right now and if you watched the late night talk shows with no audiences, you know that’s not funny either.
So I am trying to get the word out about the best comedians out there. This week I have the funniest phone conversation with popular comedian Karen Mills. She’s not just another Karen either.
We had an 11 am phone interview set up and a little after 11 she called and said she was sorry for being a little late but she swore she thought I was calling her then realized she was supposed to call me. We laughed because you know that is reality now days!…
