Lisa Diane Kastner was born and raised in Camden, NJ which was one of the most dangerous cities in America. In high school, she was a dancer and co-host on Dance Party USA, a syndicated television show on the USA Network. At the age of 20 she came home to find her house had burned down and she was suddenly homeless. She spent the next several years rebuilding by working and going to school full time to obtain her Bachelors, MBA, and MFA. While fulfilling an amazing corporate career in which she transformed organizations through technology and process, she began Running Wild, LLC which consists of Running Wild Press where they publish great stories with great writing that don't fit neatly in a box and RIZE where they publish great genre stories written by people of color and other underrepresented groups. Running Wild has been honored with two best of 2019 and two best of 2020 books according to Kirkus Reviews as well as several starred reviews and additional acclaim. Lisa was named to Yahoo Finance's Top 10 Entrepreneurs to Watch in 2021 and Nominated for FORBES NEXT 1000, a list of American self funded entrepreneurs who continue to strive during the challenging times of COVID.
