Lisa Souza Stranded on a Dessert Island

Please welcome Lisa Souza, author of Beauty And The Bridesmaid, as she tackles our Desert Island Interview!

Lisa Souza was raised on the mean streets of Spokane, Washington, one of five siblings wrestling for attention and hot meals.

She has a degree in English because both her husband and parents insisted she buck up and finish something. Without outside pressure, she fizzled out on an interior design program, bailed on computer science after two years, but rallied to complete her certification in hypnosis in 2012.

Lisa lives in the Snohomish Valley with her first husband Mark, (author of Robyn's Egg), two stoic children, and Tater the rescue dog, whose ancestry is very much in question.

Lisa Souza Stranded on a Desert Island

If you could only have one book with you, what would it be?

One book!? Seriously? Can I bring a Kindle? Sigh. If I any sense I’d bring “How to Survive on a Desert Island” (I googled it and there is such a book) but you can’t make me. I want fiction. So… “One Door Away From Heaven.” It’s a nice l-o-n-g book. It’s Koontz. And it was that or “Awaken the Giant Within.” I figured the drive toward self-improvement would fizzle out pretty quickly on a desert island.

What one luxury item would you want to be stranded with?

My laptop. Then I can cheat my way around the one book dilemma by downloaded additional material, listen to iTunes and still write letters to my mom. My husband would take his vodka fountain.

What is the one practical item you would want to have with you to use?

 Shampoo. It can double as soap. Keep those cooties away, say I.
Would you enjoy the solitude, even briefly, or would it drive you crazy?

 Oh I’d be fine for quite some time. Right up until I went stark raving nuts.

If you could be stranded with one other person, who would you want it to be?

Super easy: McGyver. He can get me OFF that island. Oh. Sorry. I meant my husband.

What modern technology would you miss the most?

  It’s a toss-up between my iPod and on-demand TV.

What food or beverage would you miss the most?
Popcorn. Iced Tea.

How many days do you think you would cope without rescue?

When does it start getting dark? Did you say  “days”?

What is the first thing you would do when rescued?

 Shower. It’s in everybody’s best interest.

What would be your first Tweet or Facebook update upon your return?

 Check out my new profile pic! Mama dropped that menopausal weight gain!


Beauty and the Bridesmaid

Could love be a nip/tuck away?

Having endured her mother's fourth wedding, hypnotized by makeover shows, and tempted by Zvengali-esque image consultant Kennedy J, ├╝ber bridesmaid Dot Lindell launches into an odyssey of self improvement, plastic surgery and therapy. 

Then new and improved Dot encounters former high school hottie John Miller and begins a risky deception, convincing both herself and John she's a totally different person. And baybe she can pull it off: after all she's unrecognizable.

But then John introduces Dot to his best friend - and that bully from her high school nightmares - Jack Weston. Seems Jack's changed since high school, too... he's grown dangerous.
