About the Author | Press Biography | Accolades


LJ LaRue is a pen name, a conspirator in the weaving of the written word.

LJ was born to two of the least creative parents.  LJ’s mother worked a full-time job, so many days LJ babysat her little sister.

Her sister didn’t enjoy the same shows she did. Retiring to her bedroom, LJ would break out dictionaries, pens, paper, and thesauri. The would-be writer intertwined words that created worlds foreign to earth.

The desire to create something readers would love came early to LJ. She wrote her first story at a young age. It was a typical romantic fantasy about a prince rescuing a princess. At that tender age, Disney cartoons influenced her writing.

At twenty, LJ met and started a relationship with her husband. By twenty-six, they had married and had a daughter.
