Lilla grew up on a beautiful sheep farm in the Bay of Islands, NZ. She now lives in the Far North of NZ with husband Ian. Apart from writing she also enjoys artistic painting, and has painted portraits for family and friends. Lilla has created a personalised storybook for her step-grandson Blaze and a children's storybook, personalised for granddaughter Elinor. Her first novel "The Jovian Legacy" was followed by its sequel "In Between the After". Her first children's book Riwi the Kiwi, a delightful rhyming story with a message about bullying, has been a hit with local libraries and primary schools, and as far afield as the UK and the US. She has since written three more humorous children's rhyming stories which are currently in the process of being published.
