Lila grew up dyslexic making reading hard and not particularly fun growing up. As Lila improved her reading she found a love for Children's literature. Outside of Kepler's, Lila pursues reviewing books professionally and writing her own novels. Some of her favorite authors are Rick Riordan, Adriana Mather, and Michelle Hodkin.
