Lisa Arsenault’s first poetry manuscript, working title “The Terrorist: A Book of Love Poems” is complete and she is working towards publication. Music has heavily influenced the manuscript’s rhythm and tone: from Beethoven, Mozart, Black Sabbath’s first five albums, Garbage’s Version 2 album, Genesis, Eagles, Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Chris Cornell. She is writing a second manuscript, “Nail’er Assault,” an anagram of her name. Lisa Arsenault is from Timmins, Ontario, and has a B.A. in Psychology from York University.
