L Stout grew up in South East England and graduated from Durham University with a degree in law. Since then she’s split her time between working as a receptionist and writing paranormal stories. Her childhood (and much of her adult life) has been full of various book related obsessions, and her greatest ambition is to write something that creates a similar impact on others. Her favourite genres are currently urban and dark fantasy, and she enjoys the challenge of taking familiar plot lines and twisting them so that they play out unpredictably. Her first novel (Shadowbound) is now available on amazon.
