Lil is a freelance copywriter and first-time author who has been described by numerous friends as 'the gayest person I know'. She's written for a number of publications including The Spinoff and more.

Lil spent two years telling her coming-out story around New Zealand as a part of Rainbow Youth's high-school education programme, which inspired her to write her memoir, Not That I'd Kiss a Girl.
Lil has spoken at the VERB Writers’ Festival in Welly, the Auckland Writers’ Festival, the Same Same But Different Festival, WORD Christchurch, and loads more events by now, including teaching a workshop at the Schools Programme for AWF 2021.

Not That I’d Kiss A Girl was named in the ‘Top Ten Best of the Best’ for Auckland Libraries in 2020, and is a finalist for the global ‘Goldies’ Award with the Golden Crown Literary Society. It has recently been optioned by South Pacific Pictures, with the hopes of becoming a TV series one day.
