Hello there. I’m internationally recognized as an emerging writer.
I write primarily in the speculative genre, but I will often write literary fiction, and poetry (speculative & literary), as well.
What you’ll find here: me announcing my writerly news and events; on my Twitter, instagram and Facebook, I’ll be going between social commentary, artistic musing (navel gazing? cat waxing?) and outright pooftery.
I’m serious about having fun–and quite silly fun, at that–but I’m more serious, obviously, about writing.
The ‘Spider’ in my name is because I grew up knowing about Anansi the Spider Man, a trickster from African folklore that’s popular in the Caribbean. The “Lilly” rolls off the tongue better than “Lotus”, which has to do with Hindu spirituality that was a huge part of my life, and a huge part of me, growing up. (Ironically, I’m an atheist now). Trinidad multiculturalism and all that.
Having said that.
I am the Senior Editor for Abyss & Apex Magazine.
I am a member of the Horror Writers’ Association, the Science Fiction Poetry Association, SFWA, SFCanada, CSFFA and I am a Codexian.
