About


Lilly Avalon is the thirty-something author of the RESIST series and other romance books. She started to pen her first erotica at twelve years old, but her mom found the "dirty story" and threw it away, which was just as well because it wasn't that good. At all. Luckily, she continued to write stories for years until she rediscovered her love of sexy tales in her late twenties.

Lilly currently resides in Ohio with her husband. Lilly Avalon is a pen name.


A Little More About Me...

Throwback photo to my early pre-publishing writing days.

I began writing seriously in 2011 when I started to book blog. I participated in NaNoWriMo that year and wrote my first published book, If Only We, which is currently published under my real name Jessica L. Tate. It took me nearly two years to finish writing and revising the story and I published it on October 27th, 2013.

A couple months later, I decided to write a steamy romance. This is where Lilly Avalon, my pen name, was born. I published Here All Along, a short story, on Valentine's Day in 2014. From then on, I continued to publish mostly under the pen name because I was loving writing romance with sexytimes.


My husband and I on the day we eloped at the courthouse.

In December of 2015, I met Kyle on a dating app. We met in person and there was something magical about our relationship. I loved talking to him every day, and it didn't take long for us to get serious. We were engaged the following September and then married on January 13th 2017. We're still going strong after more than five years together.
