Hi, everyone! I’m here to announce that this website is moving! You’ll still be getting plenty of news and updates, even poetry, from me, but now it will be on my official website.
I’ve been with WordPress for years, and will still be keeping this site up (it has a lot of exclusive poetry), but felt I needed to move to a bigger host.
The new link is below! I look forward to “seeing” you all there! There’s a section to see all my current work, upcoming projects, press features and ways to contact me. The only thing I have to update is my events page, which will be coming shortly.
Hello, readers! First of all, I want to thank each and every one of you for reading my debut novel, Stake-Out. Your purchases, reviews and promotions have been invaluable to me! So, if you liked Stake-Out, Vamptasy Publishing and I have some great news: book two has been approved for publication! Yes, the second book in the Paranormal Detectives Series was accepted by Vamptasy. Miranda’s Rights will be released on January 8th, 2016, so mark your calendars!
As soon as I have cover art (the cover is being done by the amazing Rue Volley again!), I will update this post.
Miranda’s Rights (Paranormal Detectives Series Book Two) Coming soon from Vamptasy Publishing! The dead don’t always rest easy. Retired detective Danny Mancini is haunted by nightmares after he found out that paranormal creatures exist. All he wants is to forget them…especially a certain half-vampire. When cursed werewolves show up trying to kill him, he is forced to go back to the Paranormal Investigative Division for help against a powerful old enemy. What he was not expecting was a dead ex showing back up after twenty-six years. Sound good? I hope so! If you haven’t read Stake-Out yet, I advise that you do, so you will be caught up by the time Miranda’s Rights is released! You can purchase it as an ebook or paperback by clicking here!

Hello, readers! I am so very excited to be announcing the official publication of the anthology Wishful Thinking from Fireside Press, the first in the Wishes series of books.
In Wishful Thinking, you will find my horror/sci-fi short story, “Kill ‘Em With Kindness”, about a young man who wishes people would just be kind. He gets his wish, but it all quickly goes horribly wrong…
I was inspired to write this story because of two things: one, the state of this absolutely crazy world we live in and two, a quote I heard a few years ago, about wanting kindness to be a normal thing instead of a rarity. This is my favorite story I’ve written to date and I am so glad that Fireside Press picked it up!
Below you will find the Amazon link (the book is only $0.99!). Please purchase it and leave a review, helping the indie writer community that came together to make this book possible. Most of all, ENJOY!
I grew up surrounded by books, and to know that my story is out there, in a book, for people to enjoy at the leisure, it amazes me. I am so grateful and thankful to God and to everyone who believed in me and encouraged me through this journey. My mom, for one, has always been just the best. She;s the reason I keep pushing onwards. But I have so many friends who keep me going by being supportive. You all know who you are.
Enjoy everyone! xoxo LL

Take that little piece
Take it far away from me
Throw it away
I don’t care
Just take it with you
I don’t want it anymore
It’s such a burden
Such a heavy thing to carry around
Like an albatross around my neck
A ball and chain
That thing I never noticed
Suddenly became everything to me
Such a noticeable thing I can’t go a day without thinking of
There is always a reminder
I can’t get away
So take it
Let your pets eat it
Stomp it under your Converse shoes
Damnit, I don’t care
Just don’t let me keep it
Make me one promise once you have it
Whatever you do with it
Don’t take it for granted
It’s such a burden to have
A heart in love
I thought I was mistaken
Never thought I’d see you again
I watched you die
Slowly, your mortal body
Wilted before my undying eyes
I walked away
Didn’t have the courage to change you
Didn’t have a heart to watch your smile
The light in your eyes
When you left you took
A little piece of me
Away with you to Heaven
You promised me you’d see me again
Baby, I just wonder when?
Because immortality is no fun
If I can’t spend it with you
And now you’re here
But you’re not the same
You don’t know me anymore
A familiar face, the same place
But a different heart inside
A century went by
I barely noticed
And now I miss you more
You’re here but you’re not the man I knew
Your heart is hardened
And I don’t know what to do
Can I make your mortal heart open up?
Can you make my immortal soul love again?
