Lily Williams is an author, illustrator, and storyteller who seeks to inspire change through education. Her work covers many topics, from the trophic cascade in the award-winning animated documentary short film FINconceivable and award-winning If Animals Disappeared nonfiction picture book series, to menstruation in the webcomic The Mean Magenta and graphic novel, Go With The Flow,, to Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in her My O.C.D. Story and I’m So O.C.D. That… comics and upcoming graphic novel Exposures (First Second, 2022). Lily believes in the power of making information fun, educational, and accessible for all audiences.

Lily grew up in Northern California where she graduated from California College of the Arts with a B.F.A. in Animation. She spent time working in feature film animation in Los Angeles before transitioning her career to freelance and publishing. In addition to being an author and illustrator, Lily is also a Lecturer at University of Colorado, Denver.

When she isn’t creating, Lily can be found dreaming about the smell of cold winter air, listening for the sound of airplanes on a rainy day, playing with her rescue rabbits (Owen and Oliver), and perfecting her gluten free waffle recipe. Lily lives in the mountains in Colorado.
