LilaJune lives in a cozy cabin with floor to ceiling bookshelves, mismatched lamps and a teacup collection. When she isn’t snuggled up with a book and her black cat in her old patched up leather armchair she is hiking in the woods collecting rosehips (for tea of course) and wildflowers. LilaJune freelances as a sage but moonlights as an assassin.

If only LilaJune were real and not an alter ego brought to life for the purpose I don’t fully recall. But these days the real LJ is pretty ok too; wife, momma, doctor, liberal burning down The South one vote at a time.

So despite the fact that my alter ego is still more interesting than I (that’s what alter egos are for!) we still share a bookish obsession particularly young adult, NA, science fiction, fantasy, science fantasy any combination of the aforementioned and an occasional Dean Koonts thriller or some good old classic fanfic!

And we both have a black cat… Her name is Misery and she is able to cross between the parallel universes of our lives because….well…she is a cat and they can do things like that.

And despite this blog being pretty small and unkept it’s fun to come here and just dump all the bookish feels whenever possible or chance upon another person who wants to drop in and talk books. So if that’s you.. feel free!!!


P.S one of my biggest nerdy passions is to dissect fictional character’s medical ailments! So if you are an author, reader or just a curious human and you have a character driven medical question (not a REAL ONE mind!) I’d love to help you find an answer!

      • lilajune says:

        I hadn’t done it yet because I am a terrible terrible blogger who procrastinates and does not keep a good schedule 😉 I am SUPER honored that you nominated me and I’ll be happy to answer the questions (i was actually going to finialy do the post this week 🙂 )

  9. A Fan Of Your Story says:

    Hey ! I have read the beginning of your story “The After” and I am wondering if you would update it. It’s an amazing story, very well written !!! A lot of people are dying for you to keep writing !

    • lilajune says:

      Hi there!
      Thanks for taking the time to track me down in the blogosphere!! I’ll admit… I do feel more than a little guilty at leaving the story hanging over there & your kind words are bittersweet indeed!! I will absolutely update someday/ as soon as I am able (started med school in the summer and my life got eaten up by that). I know how the story ends & I know the end is pretty close I just want to make sure to do such beloved characters justice… Ugh!!! much harder than i thought it would be!
      Anyway… please know that I respect the need to have a story come to a close and I promise to try to do that for you in the not too distant future!! Thank you, thank you for taking the time to reach out to me 🙂

      P.S have you read the stuff by the woman who codes and writes??? She and I are good friends and I adore her work!

  10. Have you ever read a story about Hector? I ask everyone this…I’m trying to get a few books on the bloke.

    • lilajune says:

      Not that i’m aware of.. I can only recall a reference in Troilus and Cressida.
      Are you writing or just searching for the mythology?

      • I fear I’m just a huge fan of Hector. You know, I’m always wishing he wouldn’t have died. So…I suppose it would be more for creative writing.

      • lilajune says:

        Well, I’d certainly read it : )

        Mythology does rather lend itself to a bit of playing around with the story should you be so inclined to rewrite things a tad… though, it is true that all the good characters eventually seem to die horrifically 😉

        I’m just coming off a rather long lived fantasy/mythology book hangover myself!

      • Well, thanks!

        Yes, what’s with that? Poor Hector. Always made me so cranky.

        Cool! What was it?
