Meet Rhode Island Author, Vanessa Lillie


Vanessa Lillie has fifteen years of marketing and communications experience and enjoys organizing book events and literary happenings in the Providence, Rhode Island area. Originally from Oklahoma, Vanessa calls Providence, Rhode Island home with her husband and sloth obsessed son.

Her debut thriller, Little Voices, was an Amazon bestseller and number one psychological thriller for all of September 2019. Little Voices received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Library Journal as well as must-read lists in Real Simple, Refinery29, Cosmopolitan UK, and Bookish. It was also named one of the best debut thrillers of 2019 by Bolo Books. The Providence Journal review said, “Aficionados of mystery, thriller and horror will savor this intricately plotted page-turner that builds to a stunning denouement.” Lillie’s next thriller, For the Best, releases September 8, 2020, and it will also be set in Providence.

Originally from Miami (Mi-am-MUH), Oklahoma, she studied English at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO, and received a Masters of Public Administration from American University.

She likes to tell people about winning a poker tournament in St. Martin to sound interesting, but most of her time is spent writing on her phone at playdates. She’s represented by Victoria Sanders of VSA.
