Lisa Rogak…has written the most absurd selection of books known to man.

Thanks for visiting my site. I’m an independent book author and magazine journalist who’s been in the business for 30 years. I’ve covered everything from sabbaticals to baby names to funeral food customs, though in the last few years I’ve focused on writing biographies.
Writing has provided me with a fascinating, adventurous life. I wake up each morning looking forward to discovering what new things I’ll learn that day, which is something I think everyone should strive for. After all this time, it never ceases to amaze me that I have been able to make my living by indulging my curiosity and asking total strangers really nosy questions…
In November 2008, I hit a personal milestone when my book Barack Obama In His Own Words hit the New York Times Bestsellers list.
And in January 2010, my biography Haunted Heart: The Life & Times of Stephen King, was nominated for an Edgar, from the Mystery Writers of America, in the Best Critical/Biographical category.
I currently focus on writing books about dogs and other animals, quote books, and the occasional biography.
