Lakisha Spletzer

Biography

I'm an Indie Cross-Genre writer of science fiction/fantasy/paranormal romance. I started writing stories and poetry at the age of 8 and haven't stopped yet.

I think I've always been a writer, but becoming a published one took a lot of work and dedication. That didn't happen until after I left my home state of Virginia, and moved to Florida in 2004.

I've learned to not let life's many road blocks and speed bumps throw me to the curb. I can't wait to dive in and continue to share the stories swirling around in my head.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I do. It was called, "The Elf and the Fruit Bowl." My mom saved the original notebook page it was on because it received and Honorable Mention in a writing contest that our local PTA had offered.
What do your fans mean to you?
I don't really like using the word "fan" because it originally came from the word "fanatic." I prefer to say readers or book lovers.

My readers mean the world to me because they offer a lot of encouragement, insights, and sometimes corrections to my story lines. I really do enjoy hearing what they think of my writing, my characters and the crazy paths I choose to take them down in my worlds.

I really don't think my writing would be the same without all the feedback.

Smashwords book reviews by Lakisha Spletzer

  • Maid in the USA on Oct. 22, 2014

    All though there are a few cliches in this story, I gave it 4 stars because of the flow, characters and the overall warm fuzzy feeling it gave me when I reached the happily ever after ending. I've been on a bit of a romance kick as of late and so I'm looking for that special something in the story. I will admit that I wanted to see Celine be a little bit more wary about Pierce's initial offer but other than that, I thought her reactions and behavior fit the story. Pierce was interesting because he defied my idea of what kind of person/character he was going to be when he started waving around money and telling Celine that he needed her help. He was a little high-handed but that passed as the story unfolded. Would I recommend this? Yes, I would.

    I like the premise of this first novel in the Brides of the Kindred series. The different types of Kindred and their specific needs in "brides" is interesting. However, there were a couple of things that irritated me about the story. One of the things that drove me nuts was Olivia's constant denial of her situation and her whiny behavior at being selected as a bride for the Beast Kindred, Baird. Also her unwillingness to even try to get to know him better as well as her rule breaking were hard things to handle. And her quick change of behavior to a "save me, save me" mentality whenever her poor decisions landed her in hot water had me yelling at Baird to get rid of her and find someone better. I like Baird. He had infinite patience and he bent over backwards to try to accommodate his unwilling and annoying bride to be. His attempts to move ahead with his life after suffering horribly at the hands of the enemy made me want to get to know him better. The flow of the story was fine as was the overall writing of this story. Would I recommend this book? Yes, but be prepared for the overflow of the whiny cup.
