The L.L. in my name stands for Leslie Lee. I write erotic romance and post-apocalyptic/dystopian fiction under Leslie Lee Sanders.
But horror and thriller fiction (L.L. Sanders) is what I grew up on, what’s inspires me, and what began my pursuit to authorship. I’ve written many short scary stories since the 6th grade, now they’re much more mature in general, thanks to the wide range of emotion and experiences I’ve encountered over the years.
I’m a huge fan of horror and psychological thrillers in every fashion; movies, books, sketches, campfire tales, haunted houses (real and those set up on and around Halloween). Some of my favorites stories are those that twist at the end or are ambiguous with deep societal or morality themes. This includes dystopias like Hugh Howey’s Wool, psychological thrillers like Shutter Island, and popular and classic horror/romances like V.C. Andrews’s Flowers in the Attic, my favorite.
All my ideas start with a twist which is exactly how most of my stories end.
