Lillah Lawson is the author of two published works: the novel Monarchs Under the Sassafras Tree, (Regal House Publishing, September 2019), a nominee for this year’s Georgia Author of the Year Awards in the literary fiction category; and Dead Rockstar (Parliament House Press, November 2020). As with the locale of Shoofly, Lillah’s fiction usually takes place in the state of Georgia, where she was born and raised. A history buff, voracious reader and amateur genealogist, her work often seeks to reconcile the struggles of the past with hope for the future, while exploring a love of family, both blood and chosen. Lillah lives just outside of Athens with her husband and son.
