L.S. Christopher is a somewhat eccentric cat owner, spooky Halloween enthusiast, and unapologetic lover of creature features. She also crafts, cooks, and occasionally writes a book.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Seeing the stories that at first only I could see, the worlds and characters that only existed inside my head, take permanent form in the real world - even if that's just text on a page. And hearing from readers who say this thing I created made them happy.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Frustration, maybe a little bit of rebellion. A lot of writing advice I'd gotten way back in the beginning was all about needing to conform to what the industry wanted, and I didn't like that. Why would I want to write exactly what everyone else was writing? Authors aren't supposed to conform, we're supposed to create, and I see self-publishing as empowering us to do just that.
Four guys who do science for a living, the bunnygirl who lives in their lab, and more weird creatures than you can shake a stick at. Oh, and don't forget the rogue government scientist who thinks he's a supervillain and his former handlers who just want the whole thing to go away—by any means necessary. And that's just the beginning.
Welcome to Barracuda Flats, Population: 5. A string of lonely buildings crouched in the shadow of the mountains; a wide spot on a narrow trail leading into a dangerous, little-used crossing. A quiet little place most of the time, where the biggest threat to anyone would seem to be boredom. Or so you might think, anyway...but you would be wrong.
The Hero Cleanup Protocol

I enjoyed this story, but I found myself disappointed that there wasn't more of it. I definitely wanted to read more about the best superhuman team in the southeast region! And knowing Powersurge's secret when the rest of his teammates don't is just icing on the cake.
The Rise and Fall of Diamonds
on Dec. 09, 2011
After I first encountered this book online (and found myself returning to it multiple times), I knew I had to have a full copy of my own. Mr. Epstein's writing style is straightforward yet engaging, and the subject matter is fascinating. If you've never thought much about what's behind all of those diamond commercials that start showing up across the media spectrum before every holiday, you will never look at them the same way again after reading this book.
