Lisa Hossler lives along the shore of Lake Erie. She is an addictive reader. She tried to get help for her problem, but the therapist only gave her some pamphlets to read. She works in a library, hoping no one will notice her addiction, reading on the sly, checking out books to herself, hoarding them at home. One day, while reading a Bob Woodward book, Lisa began to take notes, copying down Mr. Woodward’s phrases, and studying his writing style. She began to assemble phrases into different contexts. Over time she developed her own writing style. She writes from home, trying to incorporate the lives of the people she sees.
