Lisa Begin-Kruysman

Award winning author and blogger
New Jersey
Lisa Begin-Kruysman is an author of fiction and non-fiction books often featuring her favorite writing topic, the human-canine bond. The stories of her well-received short-story collection Something’s Lost and Must be Found were inspired by posts published on her blog that was established in 2010 to educate dog lovers about, and to promote, Will Judy’s venerable National Dog Week movement and subsequent book, Dog’s Best Friend (McFarland – 2014), nominated for a Maxwell Medallion by the Dog Writers Association of America. The author is a graduate of the University of Connecticut and previously worked as a Human Resources Associate at Home Box Office in New York City. These days she derives inspiration writing near “the ‘cric” in Ocean County, NJ where she resides with her husband, Rich, and Foster-to-Forever dog, Teddy.
