Who’s L.J. Longo?

It’s me.  I admit it.  I am L.J. Longo.  Don’t tell my Mom; she’ll totally freak.

I’m a queer author, a geek, a feminist, and an MFA student studying genre fiction. I think that covers all the labels; I don’t really like labels.  Rules tend to get me in trouble.

I’ve published two romance novels, Evasive Love through Ellora’s Cave in 2012 and The Dishonest Lover through Evernight Publishing in 2016. My novella, Uninvited Love, appeared in the anthology Dark Captive: Manlove Edition (a best seller on Amazon). So far in 2017, readers can looked forward to The  Scarf, a novella in an untitled anthology and Hiring the Tiger.

There are more stories for free (donations appreciated) available if you click on Books + Stories.


Things I may be obsessed with:

  • The music of Rufus Wainwright, Neko Case, and The Decemberists
  • The writings of Anais Nin, Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, Karen Russell, and Stephen King
  • The weird and wonderful thing that is Welcome to Night Vale (and no.  I will not write any Cecil/Carlos fan fiction.  I won’t.  Not until Joseph Fink and Jefferey Cranor ask.  Or Cecil.  I’d totally write it for Cecil.)

I teach creative writing classes by the beach and professionally edit.

If you’d like to chat with me about books, writing, queer/feminist issues, I’m on Facebook here: L.J.Longo713
