L.T. James is a Canadian horror author with a passion for the strange and unexplained world of the paranormal and a growing affinity for supernatural beings.
Her first love was horror and the relationship with it is only growing stronger. As a small child, she adored Twilight Zone and growing up in the '80's she became enthralled with the television world of Tales from the Darkside and Tales from the Crypt for their quick delivery of the strange and horrific.
The first horror book she ever read was Stephen King's Cujo in the seventh grade and collected many of his books thereafter. In her early teens she began drawing all things morbid to the tune of her mother thinking she was crazy, her answer was:
"No mother I'm not crazy I just love this stuff!"
The things that inspired her to write are her favorite author Stephen King for the quirky characters of some of his books like Needful Things and a genuine desire to entertain fellow horror fans.
Her primary goal as an author is to deliver the satisfaction readers crave while introducing ongoing new and original material from the library of her twisted ideas! Twisted Tales from the Darkside - The Devil's Playground (The first installment of a new collection of themed horror shorts with a blend of quirky, creepy, gory and comedic tones), is written as an homage to the TV series' Tales from the Darkside and the Creepshow movies produced by George A. Romero which were based on Stephen King's graphic novel creation in the 80's, though this collection is not a graphic novel.
