Lisa Heim was born in Baltimore, MD. As a creative "outlet" she began her writing passion in her youth until she explored journalism through high school. Then, in the 1980's, the era of personal computing began and she became intrigued. While learning something completely new, her academic and career path changed. As a "people person", she pursued computer equipment and network sales, rather than analysis. As years came to pass, she realized something was missing. Once her family began, her first book was in the works. The joy and love of motherhood was something about which she wanted to share, but fell short of completing her first manuscript; she realized there was already a litany of such narratives. Her first published book, Protecting Emilie, was born with a purpose. Having never experienced "evil" by a human being, she researched and learned all she could about what she witnessed in her husband's first marriage. He was being kept from a loving relationship with his daughter in ways she never thought existed. The family experienced constant emotional heartbreaks but his daughter was the true victim. From innocent child to suicidal, Parental Alienation needed the exposure and once a reader delves into the truth, they will advocate the cause, for life. The purpose is driven home unlike any fictional story, but this is real.
