Lillian is an award-winning writer specializing in drama features and episodic series with plot twists and thrilling elements often inspired by true events.

Growing up as a Taiwanese-American in Northern California, Lillian often felt like an outsider. So she turned to writing to create worlds where people could connect and belong. Therein lies her discovery of the power of storytelling. 

Lillian’s characters are often misunderstood, overlooked, or invisible in worlds drawn from her wealth of diverse experiences in law, international affairs, national security, and cybersecurity. 

Lillian developed her craft through professional screenwriting programs at UCLA and New York University.  She read scripts at Miramax Films in New York and Gold Circle Films in Los Angeles.  Her scripts have earned recognition in the Academy’s Nicholl Fellowship, ScreenCraft, and PAGE International Screenwriting Awards to name a few.  

When she is not writing, Lillian loves hunting for vintage typewriters and spy/military antiques. She also enjoys reading, traveling, relaxing at the beach, watching movies and shows, and raising her miniature poodle. 

Lillian is a proud member of the Writers Guild of America, the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, and the American Bar Association.

The Clarinet

Scott Glickman commuted Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from Manhattan to Philadelphia on the Amtrak Acela train to work in his Philadelphia office. The other days of the week, he worked in the Manhattan office closer to home. He was married with two young children. He and his wife, Helen, lived comfortably in the Flatiron District with their two children Daniel, nine, and Abigail, seven. By all accounts, the Glickmans were the ideal image of success: they were the model family and exemplary citizens.
