Lisbeth’s debut memoir launches November 4, 2017!

In “I Asked the Blue Heron,” author Lisbeth Coiman celebrates friendship among women and draws attention to child abuse and mental illness.

At times shockingly graphic, at other poignantly poetic, Lisbeth’s memoir explores the trauma of abuse, the joys of motherhood, and the challenges of immigration alongside the vagaries of mental illness — and the power of a friendship that saw her through it all.

Her life is vividly portrayed against the backdrop of Venezuela’s violent corruption, Canada’s snowy winters, and Oklahoma’s bleak plains.

“Children given the respect they deserve from their earlier years will go through life with open eyes and ears, prepared to fight injustice, stupidity, and ignorance with arguments and constructive action.”
