Growing up near Pittsburgh, Lisa Wheeler had many bubble gum experiences. “I swallowed it, got it caught in my hair, and at five years old had it removed from my nose. Don’t ask!”

Despite that, Lisa was inspired to write about bubble gum when her niece tossed some out the window at a moving car: “I began to think about that gum in the road and what might happen to it.”

Lisa lives in a rural part of southeast Michigan with her husband and dog. Visit her at
