L.E. Sterling had an early obsession with sci-fi, fantasy and romance to which she remained faithful even through an M.A. in Creative Writing and a PhD in English Literature – where she completed a thesis on magical representation. She is the author of two previous novels, the cult hit Y/A novel The Originals (under pen name L.E. Vollick), dubbed “the Catcher in the Rye of a new generation” by one reviewer, and the urban fantasy Pluto’s Gate.

Originally hailing from Parry Sound, Ontario, L.E. spent most of her summers roaming across Canada in a van with her father, a hippie musician, her brothers and an occasional stray mutt – inspiring her writing career. She currently lives in Toronto, Ontario.

The state of our environment, all the cool stuff I've learned from some of the world's top scientists. I was even inspired by some of the research I completed for my PhD. But I was also inspired by a family story - my great grandmother, who was a twin and who 'forgot' her own identity and took on her twin's when she was separated from her family as a very small child. She lived her whole life with her twin's identity - and I wanted to know what it was like to be that close to someone... so Lucy and Margot Fox were born! (less)

There is the classic fictional couple that I keep turning back to: Lizzie Bennet and Mister Darcy (Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen). There is something so remarkable about these two. Lizzie is just so darned smart and strong, and though Darcy is an ass, he's also kind of remarkable. Then there is Sookie Stackhouse and Erik Northman (Sookie Stackhouse novels, Charlaine Harris). Like Elizabeth Bennet, Sookie has this really clear, independent spirit that I love so much. Her counterpart Erik is bizarre, hilarious, so wrong and yet so right, and therefore, so hot! And finally, I absolutely love Kate Daniels and Curran "Beast Lord" from the Kate Daniels novels (Ilona Andrews). Kate is a thrilling character -- incredibly strong and smart, yet so vulnerable. I love how Curran is outrageous with her during their "mating rituals," how he is driven by his instincts, in the same way that Erik is driven by his. This makes them imperfect characters--they show their flaws, and I love that about them. I suppose what all of the women characters have in common is their rich intelligence and independence (and in Kate's case, her bloodthirsty way with a sword). (less)

A gorgeously written novel. I love the fact that the main character is an older woman who once travelled the world by herself in this homage to H.P. Lovecraft.

“I stare into the ruggedly handsome face, the eyes alight with a vast intelligence and that eerie, unearthly power. He's beautiful, so haunted with power it takes me a second to realize exactly what position Nolan Storm has put me in, and by extension, my family.”
L.E. Sterling, True Born

“Frown deepening, Jared bounces a hand off the chair arm. 'You know you're different, Princess. And it's not just because you're some fancy, spoiled rich girl. Hell, you don't smell like anyone else. Money can't buy that smell.' I assume he wasn't talking about my expensive perfume, which money did in fact buy.”
L.E. Sterling, True Born

“He places a hand on either side of the bar, locking me in. 'And why won't you admit it?' he asks.
I'm so startled by his new, gentler tone that I hazard a glance. My breath catches in my throat. Jared's eyes have changed to that sumptuous green, huge and mesmerizing, the pupils dilating like a cat's. I can't see to look away as he inches forward, until he's standing all but a hair's breadth away from me.”
L.E. Sterling, True Born

“By your eighteenth birthday you're supposed to know. They're supposed to tell you. Splicer. True Born. Laster.”
L.E. Sterling, True Born

“In Dominion they have a saying about the Lasters. Those who can, Splice. Everyone else comes in Last.”
L.E. Sterling, True Born

“I stare at the long, almost elegant thinness of the wrist bone jutting out from a heap of flesh and cloth. All that separates us, that poor woman and me, is an accident of birth.”
L.E. Sterling, True Born

“What's a Laster? A dead man.”
