Ep. 12: Lisa Jey Davis - Writer, Painter
This week's chat is with Lisa Jey Davis. Lisa Jey is an award winning writer. She's a blogger, vlogger, and a painter. She's a Huffington Post and livestrong.com contributer. Her memoir, "Ms. Cheevious in Hollywood - My Zany Years Spent Working in Tinsel Town" became the #1 Best-Selling New Release on Amazon in its category. Lisa Jey is also a fitness and women's health professional and the author of "Ahhhhhh...Haaaaaa Moments with Ms. Cheevious", which is a yoga routine in an e-book. And she's got the upcoming "Getting Over Your Ovaries - How To Make The Change Of Life Your Bitch", which is a witty survival guide for women approaching 40 (or older) dealing with their own life change, or those witnessing it first-hand.
I asked Lisa Jey for some fun facts about her that weren't covered on the podcast. Here's what she sent me: "1. I do a mean "Jabba the Hutt" impersonation. As a matter of fact, it's one of my nicknames between me and my hubby. We have too much fun with that one. 2. My mom was born in Italy (so, yes, I am half Italian) and looked a lot like Rita Hayworth when she was 18 or so. She was a HOTTIE! 3. I was an ice skater for nine years growing up and wanted to go to the Olympics! 4. I'm planning on setting up a crowd funding campaign, and then, can someone please introduce me to Brandy Barber, so she can anonymously donate to me? 5. I love to cook and experiement. And I'm pretty good at it. I can enjoy something outstanding at a restaurant, and there is a good chance I can recreate it (or the flavor) pretty well!"
In this episode, we talk about how book publishing has changed in recent years, about the rise of self-publishing, and Lisa Jey shares her own self-publishing experience. She discusses what it's like to be an artist and a mother and how she had to separate who she was as a mom and who she was as an artist while writing and releasing Ms. Cheevious in Hollywood. She also talks about how blogging has helped her writing career. Oh! And I can't forget to tell you about her paintings, which you have to see! I'll provide a link below.
We cover a lot of ground in 40 minutes, so I'll let you get to it. Here is my chat with writer and painter, Lisa Jey Davis.
