Welcome to Lily LaMotte


Lily LaMotte is the debut author of MEASURING UP with HarperAlley (Fall 2020). When she isn’t writing picture books and middle grade graphic novels, she’s cooking up new recipes. Sometimes, when she sees the gray clouds outside her window in the Pacific Northwest, she loads up the campervan for a writing retreat camping trip with her husband and two dogs.

Lily is repped by Laura Rennert of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency.
