Lisbeth began her entrepreneurial career in 2005 when she launched The Hired Pen, a company focused on copywriting, article ghostwriting, social media, and blogging. In 2007, she completed her first book edit (1,000 pages of copy!) and loved the entire experience. As her business grew, Lis elected to shed other writing niches to focus only on books. She rebranded to Fuzzy Dog, LLC in 2017 to complete her book-only transition and to honor the memory of her dog, Katie, who’d seen her through the best and worst of times.
When she’s not working, Lis hangs out in her vegetable and flower gardens, walks with her fiancé around their neighborhood, and plays with her orange cats, Tucker and Fitz.
