Lisa Edelstein was born in Los Angeles, California. At the age of five, her parents divorced. After having a difficult time adjusting to her father’s absence, Lisa was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. She spent many years trying to get treatment for her condition, which left her with poor sleep habits and an anxiety disorder. At the age of twelve, Lisa was arrested for faking a stabbing, and as a result, she spent two years in juvenile prison.
In her book The Jewish Mother’s Guide to the Torah, Lisa Edelstein discusses how Asperger’s syndrome influenced her childhood. According to the book, Asperger’s syndrome is indicated by difficulty relating to others, difficulty with transitions or changes, and the tendency to obsess and to have unrealistic expectations. As a result, Lisa was often alienated from other Jewish girls, which led to the formation of the “closed circle of friends” with whom she shared her thoughts and feelings. Two of the most noticeable characteristics of Asperger’s syndrome in Lisa were her lack of empathy and her tendency to focus on one person rather than a group of people.
After being released from jail, Lisa went to New York City and worked in a theater as well as part-time in an office. It was while working at the theater that she began to realize how isolated and cut off she felt from the rest of the world. In these circumstances, it is easy to understand why she would turn to the comfort of writing. Although she didn’t consider herself a writer, Lisa found that her creative process came to rely on visualization and story development. By meditating on everyday happenings in her work environment, Lisa began to draw connections that would provide her with information for her novels.

In her first novel, Meet Your Maker, Lisa describes her life after her release from prison in the early months before her marriage to Richard. Although Lisa is very busy attending new functions and parties, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures, there is one detail in this novel that she couldn’t get out of her head: her role as a makeup artist. Initially, Lisa’s job as a makeup artist pays only a few dollars and is thankless, since no one seems to notice. However, Lisa’s devotion to her craft eventually lands her a job as a makeup artist in New York City’s Upper East Side. It is during this time that Lisa begins to experience the range of experiences that define someone who works in the creative arts.
After about a year working behind the scenes, Lisa’s boss lets her take a vacation, even though she has been working for the same company for nearly two decades. Lisa has been preparing herself for this vacation for so long and has barely broken into a sweat, but when she gets off the plane, everything seems to click. Her boss wants her to start doing hair and make up consultation for clients, and Lisa knows that this is where she belongs. A New York television series based on her life would be a great opportunity for her to introduce the world to this very familiar and almost perfect artist.
Although Lisa’s boss won’t give her the title of “TV Series Director”, it’s clear to see that the position is for her to grab. It is this confidence that will help her create the very characters that define her character: committed, loyal, caring, loving, passionate, smart, and resourceful. In terms of medical dramas, a TV series like St Elsewhere could easily be categorized as a medical drama. Based on real life events, it follows the story of Lisa and her partner, Dr. Benjamin Finney, as they try to help those who need it most. By choosing this genre, Lisa can give more people the chance to learn who she is and what she has become, while simultaneously creating a name for herself in the TV industry.
