Books, Short Stories, Radio Theater Links for author Lisa J Lickel

I like to write stories that define and defend contemporary families. You'll meet septuagenarians who find they're never too old to rekindle a relationship, true and tested love between an older woman and a younger man, a fatalistic relationship between a dying man and a woman with the gift of healing, a family kept alive for generations by making their deceased loved ones into gemstones, and whatever else I come up with. Click on the page titles to see more information, book trailers, recipes, read excerpts and discussion guide questions.

The following books, with noted exceptions, are available from me as well, at a cost lower than retail, though postage and tax may increase the cost. For mailed signed print copies, please connect with me (click) for prices.

The first book in the First Children of Farmington series of ethnic families who settled in Washington County, Wisconsin, is now available in print form.



Green Leaf’s cousins are all older than he and don’t like to play fair. He longs for a friend his own age he can play with, explore and fish with. When he meets a Luxembourger boy, Henri, Green Leaf is sure they could become friends, but Henri’s words are strange to Green Leaf. How can they play and explore together?

Green Leaf’s mother says, “Friends learn to speak one another’s words.” But will Green Leaf learn to say his friend’s words well enough to save Henri when he falls into danger?
