Loyalty is never easy – especially when you’re forced to choose between family and the man you would do anything to possess…
Born into a world that no child should endure, Magpie “Maggie” Crow is doted on by her loving father and over protective brothers. As much as she loves them, she fears them, especially when she learns secrets they've kept hidden.
Elliot McLaughlin joined the U.S. Marine Corps right out of high school to provide for his wife and son. He’d never intended to become a father so young, but was willing to do what it took to give his family everything they needed.
After Elliot’s family goes missing, he returns from war to an empty home. Obsessed with discovering who took his family, he investigates their disappearance and plots his revenge.
Passion brings Maggie and Elliot together. Obsession pushes them apart. As a bitter battle begins between Elliot and the Crows, Maggie’s heart hangs in the balance.

INTERVIEW WITH LILY WHITE
1) What should your readers expect from Four Crows?
Four Crows is an emotional read that follows the story of Elliot, a man made victim when his family is stolen, and a young woman, Maggie, that holds the secrets he needs. It's a dark story unlike anything I've written before, one that explores the potential for good to exist within evil, for people to have multiple facets and sides, and also explores the spirit of resilience, forgiveness and the ability to move on following trauma. Revenge is a heavy theme in this story, as well as the loyalty we feel towards family. Due to sensitive subjects described in this story, there is a warning to readers that it may contain multiple triggers.
2) What was the hardest part of writing?
The hardest part while writing Four Crows was the emotional journey of Elliot. This character is a broken person. Everything he loved in life was stripped from him and he spends the majority of the book bouncing between his blame for the family that took his wife and son, and his blame of himself for not having been there to protect them. One scene in particular ripped me apart because I had to put myself inside his head to ensure the emotions were accurate. Unfortunately, that scene described one of my worst nightmares in real life, so putting myself there tore me apart as much as the character. Typically, putting myself in the place of the characters I create is as real to me as it is to them only because I want to make sure that what they are thinking and feeling is as close to reality as possible. Being a writer forces a person to look inside and discover the parts of themselves that most people never have the chance to explore.
3)What do you like to do when you're not writing?
When I'm not writing, I'm usually at home spending time with my family and pets. I love to garden and read. I've created my own little bubble of life at home, and as a result I don't get out much.
4)Any plans for the future?
I plan to keep writing. I have so many stories in my head, spanning multiple genres, that need to be put to paper.
