After graduating from Texas A&M University, L.B. Simmons did what any biomedical science major could do. She entered the workforce as a full-time chemist. Years later, never in her wildest dreams would she have imagined herself a USA Today Bestselling contemporary romance author as well.

What began as a memoir for her children, ended up being her first self-published book, Running on Empty. Initially it was written to chronicle their actions, their phrases, and their silly arguments so that when they were older, they would always have those memories. The memoir soon began to take on a life of its own, morphing into the story of a single mother with three little girls finding love when she least expected it. Soon after, her girls were gi

I have written all of my books to a certain playlist because I do connect so strongly with music and lyrics. Music evokes that emotion that I try so hard to tap into. Plus, I have three kids so when I'm writing, I need an effective way to block out the noise. ;)(less)

I try to write with emotion. So I guess I would call it embellished experience. LOL! I try to feel what the character is feeling in that very moment and do my best to relay that to the reader. I pull from some things I have gone through, some of my own experiences or fears, but really in that moment I AM the character and feel what they feel. The stories all come from a scene in my head that I feel is the most powerful, and I just weave the story around that one scene. (less)

“But you'll never have your happy ending unless you're brave enough to open the book and start your story.”
L.B. Simmons, Running on Empty

“I think you look good, wearing my future.”
L.B. Simmons, Running on Empty

“Every being in this world makes an impact on at least one person they encounter during their lifetime. You can change the course of someone’s life by just a kind word, a hateful one, or even by simply choosing not to say anything at all. Every choice you make has the potential to create a ripple effect, trickling into and affecting the lives of others.”
L.B. Simmons, The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller

“You're beautiful. The kind of beautiful that doesn't go away. Do you even know how beautiful you are? Christ. Stop looking at me! Killing me. Do you know what that does to me? Seeing you look at me like you're half in love with me? Are you? If I write it does it make it true? So let it be written, so let it be done.”
