Lisa Stone Hardt began her career at Dell Publishing, where she learned the editorial craft from several of the best mass-market editors in the business. From 1997 to 1999, Lisa helped to launch the work of New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning, USA Today bestselling author Julie Ortolon, and Sherri Browning Erwin. She spent the next ten years pursuing a legal career, first earning her law degree with honors, then practicing as a regulatory attorney with some of the top law firms in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Through it all, Lisa maintained her ties to the publishing community and volunteered her support to promising authors pursuing a career in commercial fiction. With the founding of LSH Editorial Services in September 2010, Lisa has followed her heart back to the editorial desk, where she once again helps established and aspiring authors to find the sparkle in their work.
Lisa holds a B.S. in Journalism from Boston University and a J.D. from Boston College Law School. She is admitted to the bar in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey, but does not offer legal services at this time.
