We construct families of Lefschetz fibrations over $$S^2$$ using finite order cyclic group actions on product manifolds $$\Sigma_g \times \Sigma_g$$ for $$g \geq 0$$. We also obtain more families of Lefschetz fibrations by applying rational blow-down operation to these Lefschetz fibrations. This is joint work with Anar Akhmedov.
