love letters to the future

What I'm doing now

It Starts with a Kiss pre-order

I have finally sorted my bits out for this book. Preorders are now open, and you can expect to see it drop on 20 November this year!

Sunset on a Distant World...

This manuscript (that has wrenched my gut for the past three years) is now in its query stage. Wish me luck!

Project codename: REMSTORY

A short cyberpunk story, something a little darker than my usual fare. My test reader suggested this morning that it should be filed under horror.

Project codename: MOONOV

A multi-POV sci-fi romance novel. I've barely outlined Act 2 and am kind of scared about how long this book might end up being. I am no good with reading long books, so I'm a bit hesitant to be a hypocrite and write one.

Folding proteins

I'm a slow but active participant in the Folding@home program. Folding@home is a distributed computing project that borrows processing power from computers all over the world to perform calculations for medical research. Check out the Team NewRomancers page for more information on the program, and how you can join my team.

Who am I?

Hey there, I'm JL. I write love stories and more, often with cosmopolitan retrofuture flavours, but sometimes contemporary erotic ones too. If you're curious, you can check out my books and some free stories on my homepage. I keep in touch with my readers through Dot Club (my email newsletter) and my blog.
