Serious Round

Authors often put themselves into their characters. Which of your characters is most like you and why?

I relate to Sonia Brooks, of course, being a lawyer and a woman. There is a lot of me in her.

If you had to describe your writing style and books in a single sentence what would it be?

I write page turning thriller novels with passion that tend to explore relationships between family members and love interests.

Wacky Question

Everyone has a manuscript in their desk drawer that they would never publish. What's yours?

A fantasy novel I wrote at the tender age of 13 when the original Star Wars movies were very popular.

Author Bio

The oldest of six children, L. J. Taylor grew up in New York City. As a child, she escaped her noisy siblings by voraciously reading every book in her parents' collection and every romance novel she could check out of the public library. Her tastes later expanded to include classics, spy novels, and thrillers. Inspired by the stories she read, she began writing poetry and song lyrics and even tried to write a fantasy novel at the tender age of 13. She began writing novels as an adult during National November Writing Month in 2007 and has been chugging along ever since. When she's not writing, L. J. practices law in Miami, Florida.
