Get to Know… Doll Lil
Lil is an avid reader who gave up TV so she could greedily read every book she could get her hands on. In the process she discovered a love for contemporary romance heavily laden with humor. Lil is formerly a True Blood blogger who discovered there is more to the world than her annoying love/hate one-sided relationship with the writers of TB. She credits JR Ward for pulling her from the two dimensional world of TV viewing. True.
Lil also fancies herself a writer when she’s not working, reading, raising her kids, and married to her very own Alpha Male. Lil discovered a love of writing very early on in her grade school years and thanks to some very observant teachers throughout her later education she was able to cultivate that love into a full time obsession. After a unsuccessful year in community college Lil stopped writing. Disheartened she started watching ER and Friends. She continued to deny her love of writing and reading for several years.
She credits her love of horses and contemporary women writers, like Ward, Rachel Gibson, and Susan Elizabeth Phillips for reawakening her passion for writing. Lil began writing again in 2004 to raise awareness for Equine Welfare and ending the slaughter of our American horses. After five years in the trenches Lil took an extended break from the rescue world. Lil then took a stab at Fan Fiction and discovered yes her inner world of characters still wanted to play, so in her spare time Lil is now working on her first original manuscript. To bad most of her spare time is taken up by sleeping & bathing.
*Lil is also an avid horse lover and would like to introduce everyone to her local rescue. Pure Thoughts Inc. is based in Palm Beach County but has saved horses from all over North America ( also an orphan goat, a sheep, and a couple cows to boot) Www.pthr.org
