Lily Iona MacKenzie's Blog for Writers & Readers

MY BLOG POSTS COMMENT ON SOME ASPECT OF WRITING & READING. PLEASE JOIN ME!

Thanks for stopping by my website. In many of my blog posts, you’ll discover why writing is my addiction. You’ll also find the results of this compulsion in the books I’ve created—three novels and a poetry collection. Freefall: A Divine Comedy will be released in October 2018 but can be preordered at Pen-L Publishing. Without diving into my imagination and surfacing with what I find there, my days would be dull. I hope my writing brightens your days!

Fling!

" Fling! is both hilarious and touching. Every page is a surprise, and the characters! I especially loved Bubbles, one of the most endearing mothers in recent fiction. A scintillating read. "

All This

" Indicative of the title, the poems in All This range from the conventional lyric/narrative that captures an intense moment of emotion, an epiphany glimpsed briefly out of the corner of the eye, to the more experimental. "

What others say about my books:

Fling!

“Fling! is both hilarious and touching, the madcap journey of an aging mother and her adult daughter from cold Protestant Canada into the hallucinogenic heart of Mexico's magic. Every page is a surprise, and 'Bubbles; is one of the most endearing mothers in recent fiction. A scintillating read.”

Curva Peligrosa

“Curva Peligrosa is a wildly inventive, consistently engaging, and amusing novel, but under its bright exterior lurk darker undertones and truths; it’s a book which attempts to say serious and important things about language, story-telling, mortality, indigenous cultures, love, and sex.”

All This

“The poems in Lily Iona McKenzie’s All This are an engrossing atlas of both geographical and emotional landscapes. They move from Canada to California, from the body to bereavement, from poetry to politics, from loss to love and back again. These innovative poems resonate because, miraculously, their topographies feel both familiar and new. We love living in them.”
