Lillie likes to joke that she is a mother, author, and wife – usually in that order. Although she holds a degree in Wildlife Biology, writing has always been her passion. She was a teaching assistant for English Composition and English as a Second Language in college, and wrote countless stories in her free time before she was brave enough to submit one for publication. A preview of Manhunt was an editor's choice recipient at textnovel.com in 2009, where it is still #10 on their "Most Popular" list, and was a semi-finalist in the Dorchester Next Best Celler (sic) contest. Lillie was also awarded an Honorable Mention in the 2011 RWA-Passionate Ink's Stroke of Midnight competition for her work-in-progress, The Circle, a paranormal romance. When not writing or freezing at soccer games, Lillie loves to cook and play video games with her family.
