About the Author/School Visits 2017-09-04T05:45:17+00:00


About the Author: Lisa Wiehebrink is a proud mom of two boys, animal advocate, and children’s book author. Love Me Gently, her first book, was published in 2012 and her second, Gray Whiskers, in 2017. It was her love for animals and personal experience raising children that first motivated her to write about the profound connection of the two. She believes that by caring for a pet, children learn important life lessons such as kindness, patience, unconditional love, compassion, and empathy. These lessons help them relate to the people in their lives from childhood through adolescence to adulthood. Lisa also developed the Love Me Gently HUMANe Education® program for educators as a creative method to teach the concept of kindness to young children. She founded The Yellow Heart, Inc. to inspire and encourage children to be kind to all living things. Lisa graduated from California State University Fullerton with a Communications degree and earned a writing scholarship from Orange Coast College.  

School Visits: Lisa visits local elementary schools for book readings, book fair signings, and to present the Love Me Gently HUMANe Education® program. She is also available for middle and high school Career Day to discuss the writing process and steps to becoming a published author.
