Lucille began her career in the magazine industry while still in college, as an editorial assistant on Rock Scene and Metal Mania Magazines. After editing and writing four top-selling magazine titles for the Soap Opera Industry, she became a full-time freelancer. Her instinct for the young adult market led her to an editing position, which she held for 14 years as the creative force behind some of the leading teen magazines on newsstands at the time. Following that, Lucille freelanced for a myriad of websites, always keeping her eye on what were the leading trends in the entertainment industry. For over 30 years, she has continued to translate her love for movies, television, pop culture and music into the written word.
