Lonna Lisa Williams has been writing since she was four years old, after her father died, when her mother collected the poems she spoke. In love with words, Lonna wrote childhood stories and plays, eventually publishing novels. "Like a Tree Planted" is science fiction, and "Selah of the Summit" is fantasy. "Crossing the Chemo Room," "I Saw You in the Moon," and "Fire and Ice" tell her true "Survival Stories." She got her Master's degree in English at San Diego State University and has published poems, essays, and articles in various magazines and newspapers. A journalist and photographer, Lonna enjoys making Youtube videos (LonnaLisaWilliams' Channel). She posts new photos and writing on Facebook and her website, www.lonnawilliams.com. After losing her childhood family, surviving cancer, almost dying in a car accident, and watching her family and life in California burn up after a bitter divorce, Lonna found a new life teaching English overseas. Her four children live in California, and she visits them when she can. Her motto is that Christ's light can shine in the darkest places, and that after death comes resurrection.
