Who is L. S. King
A science fiction fan since she was a wee babe, L.S. King cut her teeth on Twilight Zone and Outer Limits. She cosplayed before it had a name, creating her own alien outfits back when folks didn't even know what a Trekkie was, and writing fanfic on everything from Batman to Dark Shadows to Star Trek to X-Men and Avengers.
As a child, L.S. began studying the martial arts, eventually earning the rank of master. Other items in her eclectic background are working in an electronics store, as a journalist, a school bus driver, in a radio station, as a gas pump jockey, and as a gymnastics coach. She also homeschooled all four of her children.
When on the planet, this mother and grandmother enjoys gardening, soap making, reading, and online gaming. She also likes All Things Myst, Middle-earth, Looney Tunes, the color purple, and is a Zorro aficionado, which might explain her love of swords and cloaks.
L.S. has worked as a submissions editor and a copy editor on several magazines, authored a column for new writers, and was a founding editor of the online magazine, Ray Gun Revival, now on hiatus. She currently hosts a fiction writing support group online as well as a teen authors group at the Kent County Public Library.
Her stories have been included in Distant Passages, and Distant Passages - Volume 2, two anthologies of the best short stories and poetry from Double-Edged Publishing, and also in Inkd Publishing's Hidden Villains.
Many online magazines have published her short stories: Deep Magic, The Sword Review, Dragons, Knights & Angels, Digital Dragon Magazine, and Residential Aliens. The fact that several of the publications which have released her stories are now defunct has nothing to do with her. Honest.
