About Lisa Di Vita

Greetings, and thank you for visiting my blog!

My background lies firmly entrenched in the fine arts: I’ve made a living as a stage and television actress, as a singer, as a dancer and even as a radio sportscaster. The jury is still out as to whether I’m multi-talented or I just can’t keep a job.

All along the journey, however, I’ve always written, be it speeches, articles, stories, or editorials. Still, for years I have fought the idea of becoming a full time writer. Now that I’ve succumbed to the notion, I’m filled with a renewed sense of purpose.

“Shattered Peacock,” my first historical novel, consumed me for several years. What happened to Iran in 1979 changed the course of history and affects the world now as much as it did then.

But for the last year, I’ve been laser-focused on Queen Margaret of Scotland. I traveled to Scotland to research at the National Library of Scotland, and then spent nearly a year hunkering down at the Huntington Library and Gardens, a beautiful place to visit for art, gardens and history, in San Marino, CA. It’s a place I think Margaret would have enjoyed.

The initial book of three about Margaret is 90% complete and I’m anticipating publishing by July, 2019. In the meantime, I’ll be introducing aspects of her life her on my blog. She was smart, beautiful and wise, even as the England imploded around her. She’s worth knowing more about!

Bottom line: Welcome. I’m so glad you’re here. Let’s stay in touch.
