L.S. Gibson has been putting pen to paper, figuratively speaking, for decades, but only in the last few years has she really pursued writing in a more serious manner, wanting to get the work published so others can read and hopefully appreciate it.
L.S. likes to write in various genres, though science fiction, fantasy and historical are among the favorites. She has three books published with Amber Quill Press: the science fiction novel, QUESTOR, released in April 2013, the fantasy novel, THE EYNAN, published in July 2013, and its sequel, THE EYNAN 2: GARILEON, released in June 2014.
However, she has a wide taste in reading and writing. Besides science fiction, she has a particular fondness for history and is always thinking up ideas for the next project.
Additionally, L.S. also writes GLBT fiction under the pen name Stevie Woods.
