Descended from families strung along the Atlantic fringe, including Scotland, Wales, Cornwall and Spain, L.J. currently lives in Australia.
Trained in archaeology and librarianship, with a PhD in palaeogenetics, L.J.’s interests include writing, ancient cultures and existentialism.
L.J.'s first novel, Olmec Obituary, opens the archaeological mystery series Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth. Recipes featured in the series are tested under strict feline supervision.
A limited edition first run of Olmec was crowd-funded via Kickstarter in early 2015.
In November 2015 Echo Publishing will release Olmec in bookstores across Australia and New Zealand, as well as online.
The Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth series. Really cold cases.
