"Education means Independence and Independence means liberty!"— Lily Amis
About Author & Blogger Lily Amis
I’m a nominated children and YA author. The author of Destination Freedom, Definition of Freedom and many more titles.
With my honest memoir I have enjoyed strong media exposure and public interest during the refugee crises in summer 2015.
Placements included two features with national newspaper the Daily Mirror as well
as interviews with popular British lifestyle websites
Female First and
Frost Magazine. A review on www.Lovereading.co.uk – the UK’s most visited book recommendation website – praised my memoir as a “frank,
powerful and thought-provoking true-life story."
I had to fight against injustice, prejudice, discrimination and social isolation for almost three decades to become
who I am today. An independent author and blogger with the goal to entertain and educate readers about important and eye-opening topics in our society.
I have become a fighter when it comes to human rights and justice. I believe strongly that everyone deserves happiness, freedom
and a life of dignity - regardless of nationality, skin-colour, age, sexual orientation and religion. Also, I see myself as an advocate for honesty and loyalty, which are important and priceless values in friendship.
I have published fifteen books and two audiobooks in different genres since 2014. All my books are based on or inspired by true stories.
You can find free read samples of each work in my Books and Collections online catalog,
which is also available in print.
All my books are available in English. My memoir is also available in German.
In 2016 I have published the second part of my childrens book series BON VOYAGE and an eye-opening and humorous Fiction book AMERICAS ROYAL FAMILY.
The first and second part of my trilogy were published in december 2016 as one Book: THE LILY AMIS STORY.
In 2017 I have published HISTORY RELOADED, Shit happens..., TEDDY & LILY and BIRDY & FISHY.
Two delightful timeless stories about love, friendship and loyalty, with original pictures and colorful Illustrations inspired by my memoir THE LILY AMIS STORY.
In spring 2017 the free Blogger magazine READ MY MIND was born.
The magazine is about publishing, books, music, movies, design/art, travel and history and is available online and in print.

In 2018 five of my timeless stories were published in Italian.

published books from 2014-2018 was published as LILY'S TREASURES.
In summer 2018 I have signed a contract with a traditional publisher in Rome Italy for my memoir Destination Freedom. Destinazione Libertà was released on November
