Lisa Haneberg

Lisa publishes fiction under indie imprint Written Pursuits and is a traditionally published author of more than a dozen nonfiction books. Lisa and her motorbike, Purple Haze, have dodged everything from cicada swarms to stinging hail to meet and connect with readers and booksellers.

Life can be tough, a hassle, draining and disappointing…or an invigorating dance. Lens is important. My love of mystery, adventure, and imaginative satire fuel my work.

Lisa Haneberg has a wicked sense of humor.

She can also write a fast-moving, totally original mystery.

—Alan Rinzler, legendary editor

Short Works

Truth and fiction are both socially constructed. My essays often stretch the truth and my stories are inspired by it. I write about adventures, misadventures, and this meandering thing we call life. 

Long Fiction

I love quirky mysteries because reading them lightens my day. Imagine my delight when I discovered that writing quirky mysteries was doubly fun. The Spy Shop mysteries are playful, odd, and vivid. I hope reading them makes your day better.

Business Writing

I’ve helped leaders lead and organizations organize and have written more than a dozen nonfiction books. Exploring the deliberate habits and design elements that increase pull and enhance flow are at the core of my business writing and consulting.

Local to Lexington, KY?
I co-founded the Lexington Writer’s Room, a nonprofit coworking space for writers.
