L.J. Hayward


L.J. Hayward lives and works on the Gold Coast, Australia. As a pathology scientist, she’s spent a good deal of time around blood and supposes it’s only natural she chose it as a cornerstone of her writing. Don’t worry, she’ll get over the obsession soon. Maybe. You can check up on her progress on her blog, Plot Happens.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Okay, serious answer... good books!
All right, real serious answer... My all time favourite pleasure reads are anything by my favourite authors, including Jim Butcher, Nick Harkaway, Manna Francis, Mike (M.R.) Carey and Richard Kadrey. My favourite genres are urban fantasy, fantasy, action, a bit of science fiction, some crime and, lately, a bit of MM.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I read on my iPad Mini. It's a great size and if the book isn't grabbing me, I can always flip over to a game of Shark Dash!! Bit harsh on the fingers on a cold winter night, though. ;)

Matt Hawkins kills monsters for a living. Slay and pay. Werewolves, trolls, the occasional ghoul that gets a bit too big for its grave; but basically, whatever nasty critter crosses his path. Mostly, he kills vampires. While he’d made something of a living out of it, he doesn't even need the promise of cash to take down a vampire. Sure, it’s a nice bonus, but vampires are his personal crusade.
