L.S. Kilroy is an irreverent sort of person who likes to write about things. Growing up an asthmatic only child in a neighborhood of geriatrics, she made friends with books at a young age, both out of necessity and genuine enjoyment.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Merrimack College and a Master of Arts degree in Writing, Literature and Publishing from Emerson College. Her debut novel, The Vitruvian Heir, was named a first place category winner in the Cygnus Awards for Science and Speculative Fiction by Chanticleer Book Reviews and Media in 2015, as well as receiving a first place award in the 2016 New England Book Show. The Clothes That Make You was inspired by her hometown of Wakefield, Mass., and a loss experienced by her mother as a teen.
L.S. Kilroy lives in a rural community in Massachusetts - not too far from Boston - with her husband, stepson, and a little black cat named Lola. When she's not a senior copywriter by day or spinning stories by night, she loves being creative in the kitchen, belting out show tunes, traveling, entertaining friends, reading, and scouting out vintage finds at consignment shops.
