Lou Harper

Goodreads Author



Member Since
August 2010

Under a prickly, cynical surface Lou Harper is an incorrigible romantic. Her love affair with the written word started at a tender age. There was never a time when stories weren't romping around in her head. She is currently embroiled in a ruinous romance with adjectives. In her free time Lou stalks deviant words and feral narratives.

Lou's favorite animal is the hedgehog. She likes nature, books, movies, photography, and good food. She has a temper and mood swings.

Lou has misspent most of her life in parts of Europe and the US, but is now firmly settled in Los Angeles and worships the sun. However, she thinks the ocean smells funny. Lou is a loner, a misfit, and a happy drunk.

I have definite plans for another Jon and Leander story. I'm up to my neck in a couple of other project right now, but I hope to get to this before the end of the year. If everything goes well, the story will come out next February or March. I know, it's a while off. I'm a slow writer. :((less)

It's Undead!

I managed to convince Amazon that I indeed own the right to Spirit Sanguine, and the book is back on the shelves in a shiny new cover. 
Unfortunately, I lost all my old Amazon reviews in the process. In hopes of garnering new ones I have the book on Instafreebie until Apri 2.  Read more of this blog post »

In Christchurch, New Zealand serial killers and other assorted murderers–including the narrator–just can't stop running into each other. Simply suspending belief isn't sufficient here; it also hast to be drawn and quartered.
