L.S. Lane began composing poetry in elementary school and started her first novel while still in high school. After selling an article to a Midwest publication, she studied creative writing at Purdue University, took a fiction-writing course offered by Writer’s Digest, and worked as a writer and editor for a regional magazine. Today she is a fiction editor who enjoys guiding writers toward their publishing goals, as well as writing her own stories.
After creating, editing, and publishing a journal for seasoned (senior) citizens, she spent several years editing newsletters and e-zines for writers’ groups. Currently, she has one manuscript going to press, a second that will be released this spring, and more in various stages of completion. She also writes regularly for the Blood Red Pencil (bloodredpencil.blogspot.com), a blog for writers, editors, those who would like to be either, or those who simply enjoy a great book.
Leaning much closer to the strong characterizations of literary writing than to plot-driven genre fiction, her fast-paced novels delve into the lives, relationships, and experiences that make us who we are. Three-dimensional characters who face life-altering situations invite readers into their lives and bring a strong sense of realism to her stories. No graphic sex. No expletives. Only limited violence when essential to the story.
