Did you know that many Texas Wesleyan alumni are published authors? We love to highlight the successes of our alums and are featuring several TXWES writers over the coming weeks.

Lisa Landolt is connected to Texas Wesleyan in many ways – first as an undergraduate mass communications major, then graduating second in her class at Texas Wesleyan Law School, and finally, serving as an adjunct professor, teaching communication law and ethics. Lisa’s book, Good Man Hunting, is a fictional tale that mixes suspense with romance. 

What is the synopsis of your book?
What if you could have any man you wanted – no matter how rich or good looking? Sandra is promised she can have the man of her dreams, and all she has to do is play the Hunt Club's matchmaking "game."

What inspired you to write your book?
I wanted my clients to be inspired to not feel trapped with their lives and also show that, with real love, there are no hoops you have to jump through.

What was your biggest challenge about writing and getting published?
Acquiring an agent and then a publisher like HarperCollins always feels like a challenge, but it all falls into place if you put in the work for it.

If you or a fellow alumnus has a published work, contact the alumni office at to be considered for future feature stories.
