L.G. Keltner


L.G. Keltner spends most of her time trying to write while also cleaning up after her crazy but wonderful kids and hanging out with her husband. Her favorite genre of all time is science fiction, and she’s been trying to write novels since the age of six. Needless to say, those earliest attempts weren’t all that good.

Her non-writing hobbies include astronomy and playing Trivial Pursuit.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love creating new worlds and getting to know the people that live in them. I get to spend time in someone else's shoes each time I sit down to write, and that makes my own life that much more interesting.
What do your fans mean to you?
They're the best support system in the world. I'm just starting out, and the words of encouragement help me get through and keep going when my confidence begins to waver.
