About Me

Lisa Tresch

Author, Publisher and Writing Coach

I wrote my first short story when I was eight years old, a fast-paced tale of a talking, racing donkey named Poncho. I still have that first story, and take it out when I need a reminder that we're never too young or too old to follow our creative passion.


Writing is an act of faith, not a trick of grammar

Move the Needle

What happens when accepting an invitation to visit Ghana turns into a nine-year journey?

She was a magazine editor with a comfortable, settled life. What she thought was a one-time trip to the Ashanti Region of Ghana  led her down a path of learning about the struggles of single mothers and how seamstress apprenticeships can help move the needle toward a better life. This book takes readers on the journey, all the way to its unexpected conclusion.
