Lucille's first novel, Like Wine, was a tribute to her mother, and getting it into print before she passed was her goal. She considers Elizabeth's Mountain to be her true debut novel.
Lucille loves stories that lift her up and gratify her. Taking little pieces of characters and sometimes seeing herself in them is one of her favorite feelings. An avid reader of most genres, the only thing Lucille likes more than delving and escaping into a good book is visiting noteworthy locations. Her most recent escapade road trips took her to Asheville, NC, Charleston, SC, and the Grand Canyon! And an international trip of a lifetime – Venice, Rome, and the Amalfi Coast.
Lucille has lived most of her life in northern New Jersey and now lives in South Carolina with her husband, and close to her two daughters and grandchildren.
