LJ Greene is a self-professed obsessive multi-tasker who writes really boring stuff by day and lets her inner romantic fly by night. This California native is married to the most amazing man and has two beautiful children, not old enough to read her books. (They probably wouldn’t want to anyway on account of the “Ew, gross” factor.) She’s an avid reader of all genres, with an embarrassingly large ebook collection and a weird penchant for reading the acknowledgements pages of the books she buys. She's also a music lover with no apparent musical talent, a travel enthusiast, and a cheese connoisseur.

If a character is coming from a real place inside of me, I'll find the answer in one of those two places by stepping out of my head and into his or her reality. If I truly can't find the next line, the better dialogue, the more interesting scene, then I need to go back and reevaluate what my character truly wants. What is motivating him or her in that moment? It's not sure fire, but it's worked so far. (less)

We, readers and writers, are not who they say we are. I absolutely LOVE that I get to add my voice to the company of some of the smartest, funniest, most talented group of people I know. And I get to find my niche. When I looked around my favorite genre, I found a lot of twenty-something-year-old billionaires (not that I don't love them too!) and I wondered if a great romance could be written about a regular guy - wait, no, make him a science teacher. Wait, how about a middle school science teacher??? And with that, my brain was off in flight. And now my traffic-induced musing is on Amazon. What an amazing journey it has been!(less)

**********************************************************

In romance writing, we love our oohs and ahs. But it turns out that love scenes are quite tricky, and much harder to craft than one might expect. There’s no right way to do it, no how-to manual. Some writers prefer to simply fade to black; others fav Read more of this blog post »

I have to say that the couple that has been most enduring for me is Tristan and Danika from RK Lilley's Bad Things series. I loved the humor and the chemistry between them, and found their story painfully pleasurable to read. I would also have to cre See Full Answer

Sound Effects by L.J. Greene
“I had never been one to blindly trust the universe to award favor based on merit, but it felt like a cruel joke that we should be given a Trojan horse when we’d merely asked for a pony.”

“There are no words to describe the silence that follows. I can only say this: I’ve never been stabbed. But now I can imagine how it feels. The blade slides in with such precision, such sharpness that at first, there’s no pain – not even a full realization of what has transpired. Then slowly, as it recedes, the dawning occurs - a shocking, detached understanding of one’s own frailty. And with it comes the evidence that life is now free to flow from the body, painfully and unchecked, until there’s nothing left to give.”

“From somewhere out in the universe came the sound of a ‘click,’ as the best of what we were together dropped definitively into place.”
