My first novel-length manuscript

Planning for the latest version is DONE and in a cooling off stage for a couple of weeks. Work shall re-commence later this month. I'm feeling the vibe.


This project has just crossed the halfway mark. It has given me plenty to consider about my relationship with social media, though my thoughts seems to change on a weekly basis. Right now, I'm longing for a simpler time where social media was personal and recreational. Anyway, you can check out #project365 on my Insta.

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.
