LF Gillis


LF Gillis was raised outside the small, North Florida town of Madison. She has worked in multiple factories, worked in the hospitality industry, and even ran her own farm. Now that her children are grown, what was once a hobby has grown into a full-blown obsession.

Since her inception, Sylvia-Ann "Syl" Felix has taken up much of Gillis' time. The Legacy has taken so long to write, that one friend even wonders if Gillis is writing it for herself, or does she intend to find an audience. As a chef once told me, "Never expect anyone to eat what you wouldn't eat, yourself. I apply that advice to my writing as well as my cooking. If I struggle to read a chapter, I expect my audience will too. Therefore, the chapter goes on the chopping block.

I am in the pursuit of perfection. I may never achieve it, but I will never stop trying.

It was more of a diary about a fictional kid. I was in a church group and we received a list of projects in order to get certificates. I chose to write the diary of a missionary's daughter. The family was stationed in China.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My android.
