About the Author
At Peninsula College in Port Angeles - her home now- Lila made the President's List by attaining straight A's during one quarter. She majored in secretarial and office machines with bookkeeping secondary. Deciding she wouldn't earn much as a secretary, she went on to Western Washington University and graduated with a BA in Accounting. Even then, she knew that writing would play a big part in her life.
Lila is now a contributing author to four publications out on the market: Authors Guide to Promotion and:200 Authors and How They Were Published and Gallery of Voices.
The fourth is called Shameless Shorts, an anthology written by a group of writers who met on an Amazon forum. Royalties are donated to a worthwhile cause.
Lila worked at various jobs which she enjoyed very much. The Clallam County PUD for four years, an attorney's office for two years, Tower Service for two more years. She and her husband became vagabonds for awhile and traveled the country looking for work during the Reagan Years. They ended up in Houston, Texas, working for awhile before returning to Port Angeles. After retirement, Lila went into writing full time and it certainly paid off when she published her first book SKYE DANCER in 2003. Her second book EVIL LIVES IN BLUE ROCK was published on April 30, 2005. Much of her stories are based on her upbringing on the Reservation with all the legends, superstitions and mysticism that abound there. MIN'S MONSTER was published in 2007 and is set in the village where she grew up, though it is fiction with a bit of the truth tossed in- as are the other books as well.
Her latest book is called IN TIME, an urban fantasy- a time/place travel work of fiction - and a lot of fun to write!
Evil Lives in Blue Rock is in its second printing
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I couldn't put it EVIL LIVES IN BLUE ROCK, even though it gave me the nighttime jitters. I am Native american also and know some of the legends that possessed Lila Pinord to write this horrifying account of what can happen to a truly evil person. I loved it!
Pinord is gifted with her Native American heritage in subtle ways by speaking on two levels. For the non-native, her new book Evil Lives in Blue Rock, will keep them glued to the pages, wondering if the premise is far-fetched or if it expresses a reality they do not know. Her Native readers will know. It is a gripping story of good vs. evil told in an unusual format- Indian spiritualism from the eons of time passed and filtered down through the modern blend of spiritualism mixed with White Man's teachings. It's a tale of resident evil in the form of a shape shifter. A tale that is all too believable as how a person can be totally overcome by evil forces. It is both creepy and fascinating.
