In January, 2016, Lillian McCloy celebrated her 90th birthday. For this momentous occasion, her daughter Johanna McCloy presented her with the following gift: she would transcribe, edit, and publish the memoir that Lillian drafted on her Selectric typewriter over 25 years ago.

Johanna McCloy, a freelance writer and editor, published Six Car Lengths Behind an Elephant under the Bordertown Publishing imprint in July, 2016. With very limited exposure, Lillian McCloy’s memoir garnered prominent author blurbs and rave reader reviews. The book continues to sell more copies every year and averages 4.5 stars from 110+ individual ratings on Amazon.

Bordertown Publishing released two more publications in August, 2022: Dare to be Fabulous. Follow the journeys of daring women on the path to finding their true north and a companion Dare to be Fabulous Journal Notebook.
