Lisa Crystal Carver (also known as Lisa Suckdog) was born in New Hampshire, performed with the exhibitionistic performance art troupe Suckdog, and published the zine Rollerderby, which focused on interviews with her heroes and friends. She also produced the one-shot Generation L, which documented her consciously retro philosophy of life. After Rollerderby became a crossover success, Carver was profiled in Utne Reader and later persued a professional writing career.

Rollerderby: The Book compiles articles from the zine. Dancing Queen: a Lusty Look at the American Dream is a collection of autobiographical essays; the recent Drugs Are Nice documents the fallout from Carver's hedonistic lifestyle.

She was formerly married to the writer and musician Boyd Rice, with whom she had a son named Wolfgang.

Carver has contributed to Nerve and numerous other mainstream publications. Recently, she toured alternative bookstores in support of Drugs Are Nice.
