About


Amazon profile

I am a Canadian writer who has self-published a few works within the fantasy genre.  I enjoy writing fantasy novels and all its various sub-genres, as well as reading everything I can get my hands on. I have a bit of a book hoarding problem as I seem to buy more books than I give away. Thankfully, I do own a Kindle which will prevent me from being buried alive in books. However, is it really hoarding if it is books? I think not.

So as a Canadian I live in the frigid tundra. It is about 9 months of winter. Almost winter. Winter. Still really winter. Warmer winter. And spring winter. We tried to escape once. We got our tongues stuck on a frozen lamppost on a dare and we stuck there for the remainder of the winter.

My spouse and I don’t have children. We prefer to be ignored, so we got cats. Now they own the house.

I blog health related issues under a blog called Brainless Blogger and a migraine only blog called migrainuer mutterings and musings. Yes, I am ‘unhealthy’. But when you think about it we all get ill eventually, so I just got a head start. I will have mastered this game by the time the rest of you catch up.

I write my fantasy under a pen name. I chose Lil Hamilton. Lil for Lily, who is my Spouse’s Grandmother but mostly because I love the name. Hamilton because it is my Grandmother’s maiden name. I chose a pen name because it keeps things separate from my non-fiction and my health blogging side of things. I tried not having one but it didn’t work out well, so pen name it is!

  1. Hi. Just alerting you to my new medication that treats fibromyalgia as well as migraine – migraine either as a preventative or as an acute treatment. I see you’re on both Cymbalta and Lyrica, so I’ll assume you have no interest in a somewhat ‘different’ approach – but if ever you should want to try it (Banjo – my med) just give me a shout and I’ll send some out to you.

    Best wishes for a healthy, prosperous new year – Steve

  2. Hey Michelle, I appreciate and admire that you still write stories even if you get rejected…thats what true writers do. I love urban fantasy novel, they are really interesting. I would like to read your self-published books especially Blood lines but I cant seem to find the book to buy. Nevertheless, I’l read the chapters you have posted. By the way I have never read a book of relationships between vampires and witches except in Vampire Diaries by L.J.Smith. Maybe you could write a novel to do something of that sort of thing…there are alot urban fantasy readers that would love to read these kind of books like me, or you could write books about Angles or Dim Repears, there are some books on those kind of things but not much like Hush Hush, Fallen and Madison Avery series by Kim Harrison. Vampires are cool but there too common.

    Anyway keep up your dream as a successful bestselling writer whose books are on every bookstores shelves and keep hoping that an agent will accept you, because you never know, oneday your dreams will come true…remember never give up even if some people like Steve upset you because he does not know what a true writer is and your going to become one of them someday.

    1. Thank you Harmony. I do love the genre, that’s for sure and the series I am writing is not a vampire based one. This one though, I am doing as a self-publish rather than traditional because while it was fun to write, I don’t think I would have any takers on it. You should be able to purchase if you clink on the link below each post, or go under books. I agree that vampires are cool, but also common in the genre, sure do like reading them though. I am thinking of doing some research into demonology, and maybe get something along those lines after I finish the series I am on. Thank you for your post!

  3. Thanks Michelle, Demonology that sounds very interesting. I hope you find something along those lines….my favourite demon are the succubus like Georgina Kincaid by Richelle Meade.

  4. I’ve only just found your blog but I wanted to say good luck with your agent’s submissions. I’m a writer myself but haven’t even gotten to submitting anything yet, so I am looking forward (not) to receiving the standard numerous rejections all writers get in the beginning. Best of luck, love vampires myself (except for Twilight…ugh)
