Lisa Olmstead is the publisher and co-owner of Decadent Publishing! Her partner-in-crime, Executive editor and co-owner, Heather Bennett, interviewed her!
You may want to sit down for this...
Lisa, you are an anomaly. Left-brained scientific career, and a right-brained, boundless creative side. Does it hurt to be so smart?
LOL! I really don’t consider myself an anomaly…a curiosity maybe!
Sci-fi romance. I’m limited only by my imagination
The adrenaline junkie in me loves a great techno-thriller.
Now you're a publisher. What is the best part of that?
Besides no longer being forced to dodge obnoxious, inebriated patients taking swings at me? Or a medical system poised to implode? Couldn’t help getting that little “dig” in.
Publishing is my definition of “following your passion” and I love everything about it, although I occasionally miss the 4-point leather restraints.
I couldn’t do this without her. Seriously. I wouldn’t even bother trying. It all comes down to our combination of skill sets, personalities, intrinsic talent and goals. Heather’s strengths are uniquely paired to my weaknesses and vice versa.
Together we’re a formidable team.
What makes Decadent Publishing special?
Do you prefer salmon or steak?
How does your handsome husband help you be the spectacular businesswoman you are?
Where to begin? He cooks, cleans, runs countless errands for me when he’s not at work. All I have to say is, “Honey, I’ve got to get this done and I need some help.” He will literally drop everything he’s doing to come to my rescue.
You live in Alaska. Can you see Russia from your front door?
Nope, although it felt that way while we were living in Dutch Harbor!
And before you ask me about Sarah Palin…please don’t. I’m begging you.
We aren't the only ones who think Lisa and Decadent Publishing are awesome! Read what others are saying!
