How much do we control our own destiny? In Lisa N. Edwards’ new book, Can’t Fight Fate, Nikki, a lively Australian girl, thought she had her life planned out—until a visit to a psychic flipped her world on its head. During her reading, the psychic describes Nikki’s soul mate, a Hollywood man with crystal green eyes. But then, she lays down a cryptic warning: “Remember, he’s nice to look at, nice to see, but if you chase him, he will flee…”

Inspired by her own experiences with psychics, Edwards brings a fresh perspective to romance and finding your soul mate in a chaotic world. Though she had an extremely successful career as owner and Company Director of Melbourne entertainment agency VisionsMCP, she knew she had other dreams to follow and sold the company in 2013.

After she successfully auditioned for and completed NIDA’s (Nation Institute of Dramatic Art),

Edwards traveled between Hollywood and Australia, during which she co-wrote an award-winning screenplay. Her latest acting credits include soon to be released Aussie comedy ‘Now Add Honey’ and two Award Winning Hollywood short films—‘Riviera’ and ‘The Road Less Traveled.’
