DADDY'S GIRL Commercial
Lisa loves TV and even has Dr. Phil, Oprah or Court TV on in the background as she writes and exercises. So it was with no small amount of excitement that Lisa got to be on TV herself, promoting DADDY'S GIRL. Click here to see the DADDY'S GIRL commercial.
DIRTY BLONDE Commercial
The DIRTY BLONDE commercial was shot in a beautiful historic house in Orangeburg, NY, which is used solely for commercial shoots. The house had tons of charm, and even a few sliding walls to ensure the perfect camera shot. There were crew members everywhere (you'd be amazed at how many people it takes to shoot a 15 second commercial) but Lisa pulled it off like a pro, and kept the group laughing.
To stay true to her books, this TV commercial was actually shot in Lisa's beloved Philadelphia, and while the big lights helped illuminate the dark night, there wasn't much that could be done about the chill in the air. With an incredibly hard-working crew and even an on-site trailer, Lisa felt like a star. Of course, the 15 second commercial takes hours and hours to shoot, but Lisa did her best to keep the group laughing. And, no trip to Philly would be complete without a Philly cheese steak!
Lisa's voice and personality are definitely reproduced in the characters she creates, and her great sense of humor is equally as evident. Once you have read Lisa, you almost feel as if you know her, or at least you get a good idea of what she is like. Now, through the infinite wisdom of the geniuses at barnesandnoble.com, and the ever-so-talented radio queen Diana Jordan, you can hear directly from Lisa, in her own words and in her own voice.

Audio books have become more and more popular as everyone's lives have become busier, and Lisa is a big fan of them. If you love to read, but just don't have the time, an audio book is a terrific way to take care of business, while simultaneously being entertained. Audio books can turn even the most tedious of tasks, such as commuting to work, cleaning the house, or waiting in the doctor's office, into pleasurable experiences. They make great gifts for the elderly, sick or frequent travelers. Of course, they are also the perfect way to read on the beach without ruining a good tan!
