Through this blog, Lisa Roney is constantly rediscovering what she needs to write about. She’s up to a few other things, as well.
Currently, she’s working on two major writing projects: one a scholarly project on the subject of Creative Writing for Oxford University Press, and the other a memoir about getting married at the ripe age of 49.
She has previously published a memoir, Sweet Invisible Body: Reflections on a Life with Diabetes (Henry Holt, 1999; Owl, 2000).
She earned a PhD in American Literature and an MFA in Fiction from Penn State University, and a BA in Studio Art from Carleton College.
A few online examples of her short work published where it counts:
“What It’s Like Living Here–From Lisa Roney in Orlando” (memoir and photo essay) in Numéro Cinq.
“The Extreme Connection Between Bodies and Houses” (cultural commentary) in M/C Journal: A Journal of Media and Culture.
She has also recently been interviewed on Episode 3 of John King’s The Drunken Odyssey podcast about the writing life, and talks about movies about writers with Jaroslav Kalfar as well as John on Episode 7 and Episode 9.
