An indie author from Atlanta, L. S. Bethel loves to write fantasy, scifi, and speculative fiction. She has been writing since she was 10 years old, taking after her late father. It is because of her faith, family and friends that she is able to push herself to continue to create. She's read hundreds of books in her life, but found very few characters that looked like her. Now she takes the opportunity to give other women like her the chance to see themselves in the pages of a book.
