In 2002, Lisa Michelle Umina launched Halo Publishing International, a decision fueled with her passion to publish the voices of authors around the world. She recently opened the imprint Hola Publishing Internacional in Mexico.

Lisa created The Milo and Lisa Show after writing her first book, Milo Finds His Best Friend. Her third book Milo and the Green Wagon won the national Christian Indie Publishing Award.
