Courtesy of Lisa Doughty Lisa Doughty has a lot to write about. Not only is she a prolific novelist, she has a fascinating personal story that not many women on the planet could tell. In a recent one-on-one interview, the Lakeview, California native talked about how her career in the music industry gave way to publishing fourteen books spanning four series in just two years. Doughty did not set out to be a romance novelist. In fact, she didn’t write her first book until 2017.
