L.J. Kane

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 is having so much fun with her novels, and it’s because she always believed in herself, that she has finally become an author after procrastinating for twenty years!

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 ‘Get Carter’ (1971).

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 the author of Captor Captive, the fast-paced, psychological suspense thriller novel released on 21st April 2017.
