I am a fantasy and science fiction author living in South Florida. I have the imagination of a ten year old, which is why I write fantasy novels, but I have the knowledge of an adult who loves to read, which allows me to write science fiction.

My inner ten year old and I have written three novels, numerous short stories, and a lot of blog posts. My book of short stories called “Becoming the Story” represents my first foray into science fiction, but I still enjoy the infinite freedom of fantasy.

My newest published novel is titled “The Ghosts of Chimera,” a psychological fantasy about a troubled 13 year old boy who is drawn into another world in a search for the ghost of his younger brother.

Another novel I published this year is “Paw.” It is

When I first began blogging, I began all my posts without being totally certain what they would be about.  I would ask myself questions without clear resolutions. I would probe hazy memories for meaning. Then I would set off like an itinerant mountain hiker, without a map, to explore them. I liked to get lost in my prose, to confuse myself, then forge a path to clarity as I went along.

The Mad Scientist Aptitude Test - Kindle Single by L. E. Henderson
"I've been a fan of Henderson's writing for some time now. Her smooth prose and thought-provoking thematic elements--which are subtly woven into her stories--get me reading genres I don't normally read. This short book is lighter in tone than some..." Read more of this review »

The Bone Curse by Carrie Rubin

Clear rating
One thing I love about Carrie Rubin's medical thrillers is that they all come with a surprising spin, like employing an unusual protagonist or introducing a science fiction plot twist in a genre where science fiction is usually absent.

“Legends are legends. Never take them seriously, even if they might be true.”
L. E. Henderson, Thief of Hades

“Writing constantly is the best tonic to jealousy I’ve found.”
Lisa E. Henderson, A Trail of Crumbs to Creative Freedom: One Author's Journey Through Writer's Block and Beyond.

“Writing does what physicists cannot: it freezes time; captures the essence of the moment, even as it passes away. Writing says, we were here; that we breathed and felt and saw and made mistakes and learned from them.”
Lisa E. Henderson, A Trail of Crumbs to Creative Freedom: One Author's Journey Through Writer's Block and Beyond.

“Sometimes I think I've figured out some order in the universe, but then I find myself in Florida”
Susan Orlean, The Orchid Thief: A True Story of Beauty and Obsession

“I have always considered "Pascal's Wager" a questionable bet to place, since any God worth believing in would prefer an honest agnostic to a calculating hypocrite.”
Alan Dershowitz, Letters to a Young Lawyer

“You probably wouldn’t worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do.”
Olin Miller

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
Steve Jobs

“...we are the product of this universe and I think it can be argued that the entire cosmic code is imprinted in us. Just as our genes carry the memory of our biological ancestors, our logic carries the memory of our cosmological ancestry. We are not just imposing human-centric notions on a cosmos independent of us. We are progeny of this cosmos and our ability to understand it is an inheritance.”
Janna Levin, How the Universe Got Its Spots: Diary of a Finite Time in a Finite Space
