Author Lisa Donovan


Lisa Donovan is the author of Birds in My Backyard.

In between driving her kids to activities and lending a hand to various non-profit organizations, Lisa would gaze into the backyard for peaceful breaks. The more she looked, the more she appreciated the personalities of the birds in her backyard. Her book reflects her love of feathery visitors.

Lisa grew up in Greensburg, Pennsylvania and graduated from Grove City College. She received an M.A. in Professional Writing from Carnegie Mellon University. After working in communications for various companies and clients, she volunteers and looks out the window. This is Lisa’s first book, written to encourage others to join her.
