Lillian’s first book, an ebook of short stories, A Few Perspectives, was published in 2014 by Expats Posts, containing a fairy-tale,  a period piece set in 14th century India, and a provocative look at modern corruption through the eyes of a pre-teen forced to come of age by a rude-awakening.  Expats followed,  publishing her debut novel, the publisher’s first trade publication, Krymea River of Blood.
Lillian is collaborating presently with animation house, 3OjosPosts, and veteran producer Flavia Andrade Lima, bringing to life, the Zinies, a children’s series featuring ambulatory flowers who teach children to maintain mindfulness despite life’s difficulties, winner of Best Trailer at the Miami Web Fest 2019.  Trailer at AsanteWorks.com.
Lillian’s passion project is finishing and introducing her jazz album, a collection of soulful originals rooted in her experiences and observations, with an undertone of classical.
“Perhaps because I grew up as a scrawny, nerdy, only child having to entertain myself, from as early as I can recall I was always imagining and creating.  I’ve also always had an empathetic heart.  I remember my brother asking what I wanted for my birthday when I was 9, and I asked for world peace.  Somehow this mixture of heart and circumstance left me observant and writing from my layperson’s perspective, about the machinations of social structures and resulting psychological imprints, with the hope that I inspire more introspection, and a greater sense of responsibility for our fellow beings.”
