Bayley Grad Gets Published

Author Mark Lillet (’96) had his first short story published in a national magazine this month. The story, based on Mark’s own experience in college, is a whimsical coming of age story set during Parents’ Weekend his sophomore year and involves “a few brewskies, a couple of jello shots” and his roommate’s “unbelievably hot mother.” “I couldn’t believe it was happening to me at the time,” says Mr. Lillet, “but I knew it would make a great story someday. I just had to find the right publisher, and when I contacted the fine folks at Penthouse I knew I had found a magazine that would appreciate my writing for what it was and not try to impose their own editorial control over my words. I can’t say enough good things about them.” Mr. Lillet’s story is available on newsstands through July.
