Lisa  Angle

Lisa Angle always possessed a vivid imagination, probably a result of watching too much television while growing up. After college she began writing fiction and won First Prize in a short story contest. She spent the1990s writing feature articles and press releases. In the new millennium her love of the outdoors drew her to volunteer with the Channel Islands Naturalist Corps to lead hikes on Santa Cruz Island and talk to passengers on whale watch boats. Storytelling through film became important to her, so she produced the documentary Ablitt House Journey, and co-produced Thirty Years of Literary Excellence about the history of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference. Through her company, Ninety Degrees Media, she helps writers polish their craft. For authors wanting to sell more books, she assists them with websites, newsletters, and social media. She serves on the boards for the Writers and Publishers Network and the Ojai Film Festival.
