Welcome Message From Your Series Hosts
Lisa Bonnice is an award-winning writer and humorist. She received two excellence awards from MSNBC.com during her tenure there as a news writer/associate producer. She also traveled the country as a stand-up comedian, working with the likes of Tim Allen and Steve Harvey.
She has hosted numerous summits for The Shift Network, including the Ancestral Healing Summit, Beyond the Veil Summit, and Intuitive Medicine Summit. Lisa also co-created the Generations Oracle kit with Carrie Paris.
Her first book, Shape Shifting: The Body/Mind/Spirit Weight Solution, includes a foreword by Neale Donald Walsch. Her true crime novel, Fear of Our Father, was twice featured on the Investigation Discovery network, a documentary on Court TV, and an Emmy-nominated documentary on the BBC. Her novel The Poppet Master, a metaphysical comedy, includes a foreword by Marc Allen, publisher at New World Library (and the man who discovered Eckhart Tolle).
Lisa's newest book, based on actual events found in her family tree, is entitled Castle Gate. It’s the true and tragic saga of the Garroch and Littlejohn families, related by marriage. The Littlejohn family is, unknowingly, descended from a lineage that was cursed during a witch trial in 1600s Scotland. The Garrochs are just unfortunate enough to have married into this nightmare. Lisa uses robust and extensive genealogical research to tell the tale of the families who emigrated to the United States from Scotland during the WWI and Prohibition eras, only to have the curse follow them there. The Littlejohns and Garrochs, and over a hundred others, are devastated by one of the biggest mine explosions in American history — the Castle Gate Mine Disaster of 1924 — where families are torn apart and almost two hundred men die by fire in a mine that the Littlejohns run.
