‘Write what you know’. When L.J. Kane was a young teen this statement was a huge stumbling block, one that nearly derailed her ambition. What did she know at fourteen? If it wasn’t for her English teacher loving her fluent writing style and encouraging her, she would never have started.
L.J. Kane never gave up, the stories inside her just had to be told. Now as an adult, she is having so much fun with her novels and, because she has always believed in herself, she has finally become an author, after procrastinating for twenty years!
L.J. Kane loves people-watching, overhearing conversations on the bus, dreaming up exciting plots while waiting in traffic, and while walking the dogs. She lives with her husband who’s a great soundboard, full of encouragement, and great ideas. Between them, they have met many unusual characters over the years, people with extraordinary lives from whom she can derive lots of inspiration.
With an active interest in the Earth Sciences, L.J. Kane dreams of seeing the Northern Lights, but her fear of flying has stopped this ambition being realised, but it is still on her bucket list. Her interests are diverse: geology, country walking, painting, and watching movies, her favourites being ‘Vanishing Point’ from 1971 and ‘Soylent Green’ (1973).
You’ll always find L.J. Kane with a pen in her hand, tapping it against her teeth in thought, plotting, planning, and idly sketching characters and scenes with it. Even when typing her novels the pen is always nearby. So thankful to be an author in the 21st century, quill pens of earlier times would have stunted L.J. Kane’s ability as she is allergic to feathers!
L.J. Kane is currently working on her next novel. Updates will appear here soon!
