Lilly Montiago is the protagonist of my novel, Easter's Lilly. I've been asked what was my inspiration for creating this character. I sat down and thought about this for quite a while when I realized; she is living inside of me. Lilly is the woman we have all been at one time or another in our lives. She makes some questionable choices and we watch, from a safe distance, as she lives through the consequences. She falls in love, gets her heart broken and at some point realizes that there is no way out. Inspiration is very personal thing. I love how I feel so attached to my characters. I can't wait to see what Lilly's going to do next.
