Welcome! I’m Lillah (pronounced like “Lillie”, but with an “uh” on the end) and I’m a wordspinner, author of novels, and self-proclaimed nerdgoth.

Historical fiction is my wheelhouse, but I also write literary fiction, horror, southern gothic and speculative fiction/fantasy. Who says you have to stick to one genre? Bah! I also dabble in poetry, essays and other mediums – to quote my soul sister April Ludgate, “Whatever. I don’t believe in labels.”

My published works include Monarchs Under the Sassafras Tree (Regal House, 2019), the Dead Rockstar Trilogy, including titles Dead Rockstar (Parliament House, 2020), The Wolfden (February 2022), and the third-and-final, to be released in 2023; So Long, Bobby, a historical fiction novel set to release via Sword & Silk Publishing in February 2023; Shiver: A Cold Weather Anthology, in which my short story The Lady and the Tall Man appears (Nico Bell, 2021); short story Burn the Witch (Red), which will appear in the horror anthology Chromophobia in October 2022 (Rooster Republic Press).

Outside of writing, my days are spent playing bass badly, cycling, hiking, baking, reading everything I can get my hands on, zoning out to music all day every day, doing genealogy, taking care of a precocious pre-teen and hanging out with my metal-band playing husband. I live in a literal log-cabin at the bottom of a foggy hollow, which is very on-brand for me. I also have two fuzzy beasts who are both named after literary characters.

Find me on the social medias if you like chatting about dark and spooky things, music 24/7, pop culture jokes, a little politickin’ and lots of Golden Girls talk. Links below and up top! Check out my books, follow my progress, and consider leaving me a review on Goodreads! You know you want to!

I hope you’ll stay awhile! It’s dark and stormy here, so pull up your favorite snuggly blanket and grab that cup of tea. The candles are lit for you to read by.
