A Comparison of Fifty Shades of Grey and John Irving's In One Person & thoughts on why one is considered trash and the other literature.
Have you ever heard someone say with an air of apology, “I read trash”? Or has anyone dismissed what you read that way? Once a friend referred to an early Mary Higgins Clark book as trash. If Clark has heard her work called t...

A Memorial Day post.
Recently I read Unbroken for my women's book group. It made me think about my father, who is pictured below, and it seemed appropriate to write about it on Memorial Day. WWII Naval Aviator Francis G. Lilly with his mother Lik...

Some thoughts triggered after I read The Girl on the Train (loved it) and Gone Girl.
Recently I attended a talk by Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl. A week later I read The Girl on the Train. Both books are hugely popular and both feature more than one first person narrator who may be unreliable. Which led ...

Thoughts on how authors portray women without children.
I just finished reading The Children Act by Ian McEwan, this month's selection for my lawyer book group. (More on the lawyer book group here.) The main character is a 59-year-old judge who never chose to have children. At the...

Why Do The Books We Love (Or Hate) Matter So Much To Us?

Introduction
Lisa M. Lilly's poems and short fiction have appeared in numerous print and on-line magazines, including Parade of Phantoms, Strong Coffee, and Hair Trigger. Lisa's first published novel, The Awakening, features a young woman who inexplicably becomes pregnant and struggles for her own  -- and her baby's -- survival against the malevolent forces that wish her harm.  Lisa is currently working on The Awakening Book II: The Unbelievers.  Her collection of short stories, The Tower Formerly Known as Sears and Two Other Tales of Urban Horror, is also available on Amazon. A short film of the title story was made under the title Willis Tower.  In addition to being an author, Lisa is an attorney who handles appeals and class actions. After her parents died in 2007 due to injuries caused by an intoxicated driver, Lisa joined the board of the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM).

I have a small firm and handle complex commercial litigation. I switched to ePageCity after several years with a different (and more expensive) web hosting and design service. The transition was seamless, including the transition of my email. The team building the site kept in touch with regular updates and eased me through the process. I had no disruption to my practice at all. I like the look and content of the site better than my previous one, and the pricing is more reasonable than what I paid before. The training on editing my web content was extremely helpful, and I can add additional content and pages myself anytime I choose, which is wonderful. The ePageCity site is also easier to navigate from a user standpoint.
