About Lisa Graham

Lisa Graham knows that children sometimes have a hard time identifying and expressing their feelings.  Her ability to create picture books with endearing characters who struggle with some of the same challenges children face makes her stories relatable to young readers.  Parents and caregivers alike continue to use her picture books and story themes as a conversation starter for such tender topics as bullying and feeling different.  Educators and counselors have integrated her stories into their Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Mindfulness curriculum.

Her first book, The Adventures of Finley and Cisco, has received high praise from both the education and literary communities.  Her most recent books, Randle Finds His Light and Sandy's Safe Place to Land, once again take the readers on exciting adventures with new friends while teaching valuable life lessons along the way.

Graham says that "stories about friendship, kindness, and forgiveness are timeless and remind us about the importance of teaching core character values such as love, acceptance, compassion, and empathy.  They are also a great tool for reminding children to be mindful and accountable for their words and actions."

In 2017 Graham launched Empower Kids, LLC,  to empower children through her picture books and support stuffies.  She recently founded  Empower Kids for Literacy, a nonprofit whose mission is to promote literacy and mental health in underserved communities.

A public speaker and voiceover actor, Graham is also the producer and host of the podcast series, Tell Me, which celebrates one's power and our ability to create moments that can change lives for the better.

Graham enjoys spending time on the family farm in New Jersey with her husband, three children, a sheep named Becca, and a dog named Ollie.  She is an avid sports fan and loves reading, cooking, traveling, finding peace and balance in nature, and appreciating all music genres.
