LJ LaBarthe

L. J. is a French-Australian, who was born just after midnight. From this auspicious beginning, she has not looked back, writing a short story about Humpty Dumpty wearing an Aussie hat complete with corks when she was six years old. From there, she wrote for her high school year book, her university newspaper and in her early teens, produced a fanzine about the local punk rock music scene. She loves music of all kinds and was once a classical pianist; she loves languages and speaks French and English with a teeny-tiny smattering of Mandarin Chinese, which she hopes to relearn properly very soon. She enjoys TV, film, travel, abandoned places and researching.

L. J. loves to read complicated plots and hopes to do similar complex plot lines justice in her own writing. She writes paranormal, historical and contemporary Australian stories, usually m/m romance and featuring m/m erotica.  

L. J. lives in the city of Adelaide, and is owned by her cat.

She has been published by Dreamspinner Press and Less Than Three Press and has work coming out with Bottom Drawer Press later in 2014. Defunct titles were published by Freaky Fountain Press (defunct) and Noble Romance LLC (defunct).
