Louise Lyons

Biography

I come from a family of writers. My mother has a number of poems published in poetry anthologies, my aunt wrote poems for the church, and my grandmother sparked my inspiration with tales of fantasy. I first ventured into writing short stories at the grand old age of eight, mostly about little girls and ponies. I branched into romance in my teens, and MM romance a few years later, but none of my work saw the light of day until I discovered FanFiction in my late twenties.

Posting stories based on some of my favorite movies, provoked a surprisingly positive response from readers. This gave me the confidence to submit some of my work to publishers, and made me take my writing “hobby” more seriously.

I live in the UK, about an hour north of London, with a mad Dobermann, and a collection of tropical fish and tarantulas. I work in the insurance industry by day, and I spend every spare minute writing. I am a keen horse-rider, and I love to run long-distance. Some of my best writing inspiration comes to me when my feet are pounding the open road. I often race into the house afterward, and grab pen and paper to make notes.

I have always been a bit of a tomboy, and one of my other great loves is cars and motorcycles. My car and bike are my pride and joy, and I love to exhibit the car at shows, and take off for long days out on the bike, with no one for company but myself.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I'm not sure if it was the very first one, but it was certainly the first I remember reading for myself. My Dad bought me a copy of Black Beauty by Anna Sewell when I was very young. I was crazy about horses from the age of about 4 and as soon as I could read the book for myself, I read it from cover to cover, over and over. The story moved me to tears as a child and still has the same effect now.
What do you read for pleasure?
These days MM Romance is about all I read. I read the work of my favorite authors, or whom a few are Jay Northcote, Garrett Leigh, Taylin Clavelli, Grace R Duncan and Wade Kelly. But there are many more. I look out for new works coming out and try new sub-genres within the MM Romance genre. For instance I've recently read some fantasy and steampunk stories which I really enjoyed.
