My 25 years of freelance and travel writing has led me on many amazing excursions. A few years ago, my travels crossed paths with a very personal, inner journey that resulted in my debut book, I Cried. And People Loved Me Anyway.


It's the story of how I almost checked out for good after a series of setbacks over a short period of time – even though I appeared to be a confident, outgoing, woman who no one would have ever suspected was anything but content. After unearthing the subconscious facades I had built up since childhood, however, I discovered my life still had value and meaning despite any outer circumstances.


One of my book reviewers wrote:

I Cried. is a must-read for anyone grappling with everyday struggles that become overwhelming. Lysa’s inner journey resonates with readers who have considered giving up during tough times, and her path through despair inspires hope. In it, she stresses the importance of seeking help, self-forgiveness, spirituality – however one defines that – and unconditional love when trying to overcome emotional trauma. She teaches us how to live with passion, authenticity and purpose by treating every day as a gift.
