Lilliana Anderson

Biography

Bestselling Author of the Beautiful Series, Drawn and 47 Things, Lilliana has always loved to read and write, considering it the best form of escapism that the world has to offer.
Australian born and bred, she writes New Adult Romance revolving around her authentically Aussie characters with all the quirks you’d expect from those born Down Under.
Lilliana feels that the world should see Australia for more than just it's outback and tries to show characters in a city and suburban setting.
When she isn't writing, she wears the hat of 'wife and mother' to her husband and five children.
Before Lilliana turned to writing, she worked in a variety of industries and studied humanities and communications before transferring to commerce/law at university.
Originally from Sydney's Western suburbs, she currently lives a fairly quiet life in suburban Melbourne.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in one Sydney's least desirable western suburbs. I didn't really know any different growing up, but as I got older and came into contact with people from the eastern suburbs, I realised how different we all were. I think it helped provide diversity in my writing, giving me different tales to tell from the perspective of all walks of life. I also set a few of my books out west, because I don't believe it's as much of 'a hole' as it's claimed to be.
When did you first start writing?
Professionally, I started writing in 2012. However, writing and creating have been the backbone of my existence since I was very small.
