Lilian Nattel is the mom of 2 amazing daughters and the spouse of a great guy who cooks. Her oldest friend remembers her telling stories as young as 5, but she didn't decide to be a writer until she was 10, when she discovered that not all authors were dead. She collects stories of late bloomers. Her themes are redemption and the importance of friendship in women's lives. She sees literature as a partnership between author and reader. The author puts her vision on the page and the reader brings to it personal perceptions, experiences and insight. Together author and reader create a new book with each reading. And this journey together can continue through the wonders of the internet.
