Lisa Caprelli, a talented Latina author, hails from the vibrant city of El Paso, Texas. Despite her humble beginnings, surrounded by a close-knit Hispanic family and delicious cuisine, Lisa’s grandmother, with only a third-grade education, instilled in her the value of education. Encouraged by her grandmother’s wisdom, Lisa pursued her passion for writing and helping others.

Today, Lisa is renowned as the creative force behind the beloved children’s book series, “Unicorn Jazz,” a heartwarming journey celebrating individuality, kindness, inclusivity, and creative expression. Her dedication to spreading joy and education extends beyond the pages with the captivating Amazon TV show, “Unicorn Jazz Presents The Thing I Do.”

In her latest endeavor, Lisa channels her entrepreneurial spirit and storytelling prowess into “Skip a Step: Imparting Wisdom For Young Entrepreneur Minds.” Through this insightful book, she delves into the lives of thirteen extraordinary entrepreneurs, offering invaluable lessons on finding happiness, meaning, and success in life. Lisa’s inspiring journey from a shy girl in El Paso to an accomplished author and advocate exemplifies the transformative power of following one’s dreams and embracing the wisdom passed down by loved ones.
