About Lisa

Lisa Rusczyk Ed. D.

Hi, I’m Lisa Rusczyk. Stay at Home Mom, Author, Blogger, Teacher & Doctor of Education. Creator of the Charlie The Cavalier book series that teaches kids that they are loved. ❤️

This all got started when I wrote the book 50 Things to Know Before Having a Baby when I wanted to compile information quickly for others to learn from my experiences.  Now after a local and national television appearance, a national radio show, and 10 authors later I have published over 300 books.

If you would like to know more about me I am a stay at home Mom,  and I live with my husband, daughters, and cavalier king charles spaniel named Charlie in Lock Haven, PA.

I have been to over 35 states and over 15 countries.  I have been to many states as I traveled the United States as a software trainer for over a two year period. I have also been on 14 cruises. I hope to give you some tips from my past and future trips.

If you are interested I do teach many classes on Skillshare for writing, publishing, and more. I currently have over 6,000 students. Thank you for your support and engagement!
