Meet Lisa London, CPA

Lisa London, CPA-author of The Accountant Beside You series Lisa London, CPA is known worldwide as The Accountant Beside You. She has spent three decades working in public accounting as an auditor and small business consultant with Deloitte & Touche, LLP, in corporate accounting as a director of finance for a division of Kodak, Inc., and as a consultant with venture capital and small businesses and nonprofits. 

She began writing her books after helping her church with an accounting system conversion. Lisa found very limited resources to help the office staff and volunteers understand their basic accounting requirements. She realized that if her church needed guidance, other churches probably did too.

That aha moment led her to create The Accountant Beside You series of resources. Her first book, QuickBooks for Churches and Other Religious Organizations, is being used on six continents and has been translated into Spanish.

When she’s not working on accounting books or spending time with her husband and four children, Lisa enjoys sneaking away to write historical fiction. Her debut novel, Darker the Night, which tells the story of a young woman growing up in Hitler’s Germany from the perspective of a German civilian, has become a popular selection for book clubs.

Lisa is constantly working on more helpful accounting publications. If you have a suggestion for a book, please email Lisa at
