Lilian was born, the second of two daughters, in Athens, Greece. She came to the U.S. to study during the amazing years of the late 1960s and early 70s. This was a time without personal computers, Internet, e-mail, IPads, and IPhones. The US was deeply involved in the Vietnam War, and the anti-war student protests turned bloody and violent spreading across colleges and university campuses. It was a time of patched and embroidered blue jeans, tie-dyed fabrics, wet t-shirt contests, Woodstock, mood rings, pot, and hot pants.
College, marriage, the corporate world, and a beloved daughter kept Lilian’s writing on the back burner for many years. It wasn’t until later on in life that she decided to sit in front of the computer and finally put her thoughts on paper.
Lilian lives in Atlanta Georgia. She is blessed with a wonderful and supportive family, and circle of friends who have encouraged her along the way and have tremendous faith in her journey.

- The Key to Life
on June 02, 2013
This novel held my interest throughout most of the story.
The heroine, Anna, finds out that her employer, Matt, is in love with her, but she doesn't share the same feelings for him. She also finds out that Stan, the man in charge of the hotel where she works, has been stilling his employer blind and driving the hotel to the ground. Anna overhears the details while Stan spills his guts to his gay lover. She shares the details with Matt and his caretaker, Frank, and they decide to close the hotel and prosecute Stan. They win the case as the shocking truth comes out when Stan's boyfriend shows up in court and exposes him for what he really is, a thief, a cheater and a liar.
Matt is fighting two wars, one is that Anna will not return his love and the other is his loss of his father 4 years ago. His emotional state is at a breaking point and he has turned to alcohol. He has an episode that puts him into a coma. Anna is there along with Matt's caretaker to nurse him back to health. There is a short episode of Anna and another guy, Paul, that she meets on a week's vacation and who shows up while Anna, Matt and Frank are working in rebuilding the hotel. Jealousy flares and Matt loses control of his actions.
She loves Matt a lot but as a friend, and she wants to find someone for him that would return his love and make him happy. She finds an old journal, so she decides to go and find Matt's father, who was lost at sea but there was never any proof that he in fact was dead. She turns to an old flame, Rob, who is a man of the sea, a true sailor! For Rob the old flame flares when he sees Anna, but as much as she loved the man she doesn't believe that he still cares for her. Through a lot of trials they find Tom, Matt's father, and help him return home. Anna and Rob find love.
If you love romance and suspense, this is a good book for you. The author has done a good job interweaving the characters with the episodes. I enjoyed it.
