About The Author

aboutLisa Phillips, children’s book author, has what some would call a very unique dog. Her name is Cilla, but she was dubbed FisherDawg early on in life. FisherDawg loves anything and everything to do with the sea so the duo can often be found hanging out by the shore.

FisherDawg went a little overboard this summer (several times, in fact) and her antics were the inspiration behind Lisa’s latest book series.

Lisa believes, “There is so much beauty in life. If you just open your eyes and your imagination, you will see the magic.” She loves her volunteer work with children and is honored to share FisherDawg’s antics through this series’ storyline and captivating photographs.

Lisa started her career in the United States Navy where she was first introduced to photography. After leaving the service, she continued her career in the business world, specializing in marketing.

The youngest of four siblings, Lisa resides in Gloucester, Massachusetts, which is part of a charming seaside community called Cape Ann. She has two grown children and a lovely granddaughter who is the apple of her eye.

Lisa professes to be a bit of a tomboy! She loves to play in the sand, splash in the water and get dirty. Her favorite phrase is:

“Happiness is a summer breeze…
Sand between your toes (or paws)…
And your best friend by your side…”
