Lili Sinclaire is a local author with three books published. Her self-help books, The Fork in the Path and The Fork Trail Guide Life are about creating lasting change. Her novel, The Bridge, is a young-adult story set in a rural town on the California Coast in the 1960’s. Lili has studied conflict resolution and communication for twenty years. She’s worked as a crisis phone counselor for The Parent Connection and for Stand Strong, formerly The Women’s Shelter.

All her books, both fiction and non-fiction, are about relationships. Her goal in writing is to create a space of curiosity, allowing people to experience meaningful and fulfilling lives.
