I had the privilege of interviewing Lisa Whalen for this episode. Lisa has a Ph.D. in postsecondary and adult education, and an M.A. in creative and critical writing. She teaches writing and literature at North Hennepin Community College in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. Her essays have been featured in An Introvert in an Extrovert World, Introvert, Dear, WorkingUSA, and MotherShould?. She is currently working on publishing her memoir, Taking the Reins, while serving as a regular contributor to The Feisty Writer and The Emily Program blog. She maintains her own blog, Writing Unbridled, on her website, lisawhalen.wixsite.com/lisawhalen. Aside from writing, Whalen is a 7-year volunteer for the Animal Humane Society. She and her husband, along with two orange-tabby cats, live in St. Paul, Minnesota.
