When fire forces you to abandon everything, it also requires you to rethink the motivation for your story. Enjoy this Florida Writer Podcast with host Alison Nissen and renowned decorator and artist Elisa Stancil Levine about self-discovery in the face of adversity. 

Elisa Stancil Levine spent her childhood in a canyon on the American River, upstream from the site of the California gold rush. She left school at sixteen and as a single mother in Sacramento earned a degree in library science and studied creative writing. Working with partners she remodeled sixteen historic houses and was home and garden editor and feature writer for Sacramento Magazine. At thirty-six she founded Stancil Studios, an award-winning, nationwide decorative finishes company in San Francisco.
