About Me

JL Peridot writes erotic romance, and sometimes just erotica.


I never expected to write romance. But one thing leads to another and before you know it, you wake up on your front lawn at sunrise with one eyebrow shaved off. Wait, no, wrong story—

With the help of supportive friends, a loving partner, two bossy cats and a well-used Spotify subscription, I turtle-write saucy books involving love, danger, scifi themes, occasional irony, and inconsistent use of the Oxford comma.

My debut novel, Chasing Sisyphus, is a steamy suspense thriller set in a sordid, futuristic city on a distant planet.

I, however, live an apparently wholesome normal life in sunny, present-day Western Australia.

What turns me on? Synthwave and retrofuturism. City lights at night. Moody dawns and melancholy evenings. The kind of improvising that comes with sport, sparring and hanging one-handed, 3m above the ground. Also scotch and tea and coffee and cats.
