Lisa Loucks Christenson Bio



Lisa Loucks-Christenson makes her home in Rochester, Minnesota. At age four Lisa began drawing and creating picture books, flip books. By age eight, Lisa was already saving her allowances to buy her next eight-exposures-pack of Polaroid® film to take photos. When Lisa was in 5th grade, Wilson Rawls, the author of Where the Red Fern Grows visited her elementary school leaving a deep impression on her by teaching her about the value of our individual paths in this life.

By age 14, while marketing her photos, publishing her first images in the school yearbook, Lisa won her first national photo contest. After college she worked in advertising, graphic design, subscriptions, fulfillment, as a reporter, photographer at newspapers, magazines, and as a traveling photographer before Lisa launched out into her own photo and writing business. Lisa continues to shoot stock, lifestyle, food, environmental, pet, animal, agriculture and travel assignments for most publications, book publishers, corporations worldwide.

Lisa's love for outdoor stories, both fiction and non-fiction, developed with her background and passion in natural sciences, but also from working as an student assistant at Quarry Hill Nature Center working with the photo programs, slide archives, a few seasons working for the Minnesota Conservation Corps. After years of freelancing writing for and shooting pictures for other publishers, Lisa's literary agent signed a book deal that later led her to starting her own publishing company, creating her own wildlife documentaries from her lifetime work. Credits include: Christian Schools International, Esquire, Disney, Diversion, HSUS, Kind News, Self Magazine, Woman's World, more.

While working on non-fiction, Lisa's love for creating fiction series grew and she launched numerous stories, that went on to become #1 international best sellers, win international writing competitions, and more.

For the last 15 years Lisa's outdoor photography has focused on several books she's working on in the blufflands of southeastern Minnesota, has spent countless hours in the wild documenting the lives several pair of wild bald eagle; their behavior, interaction with each other, and other wildlife, through the seasons, along with her other documentaries including Winter Bugs! Lisa's study of insect life during the winter featuring over 200 insects she documented, both water and land insects, including caterpillars! WINTER BUGS! Exhibit is on display at Silver Lake Books, 1518 North Broadway, Rochester, MN 55906.

In 2010, Lisa's eagle story aired on Ron Schara's Minnesota Bound, she's been a guest on the Big Wild radio show, area news stations, newspapers, and magazines. Lisa's Bald Eagle Documentary and Winter Bugs! Exhibits have rotated between her galleries, and the National Eagle Center, she is national speaker and shares her passion and love of the outdoors through several outdoor programs she's developed from her own photos and research.

Lisa's love for Jesus and family is her constant compass. Through the toughest of times, Lisa and her family have relied, heavily, on faith that can and has moved mountains. Those who know Lisa, personally, joke that she climbs the backsides of mountains to reach the top, but in doing so, sees views that others never reach on the common paths.

Her priorities remain: God. Family. Work, and in that order. 

Many of Lisa's books are available, exclusively, through Peacock Books & Wildlife Art and Silver Lake Books™ Bookstores.

*Many of Lisa's works below are in her private library only and not available to the public, only family and future generations, through her estate and her heirs.

Many of Lisa's works are in various stages of edits, redevelopment, and revisions for Lisa's upcoming serial imprint, Glass Slipper Serials, and episodes under her other imprints. Lisa's documentaries are shot over years of observations, therefore, many are still in progress and the books release dates will be updated as the books become available. Foreign rights, paperback, hardcover, audio, and movie rights are available for many of Lisa's works. Grouped documentaries won't be split up. If the book has God's lessons and words, they too will remain. You can't take God out of Lisa's journeys.
