Meet the Author

I have worked with energy both as a yoga instructor and as a body worker for many years. When I left that profession, I was driven to write about energy and the paranormal. Many of the situations my heroines experience are created from my own encounters with energy, its power and possibilities.

As to the "writing," well, that started when I was eight and penned my first book on pink construction paper with a purple crayon. It was a romance that involved a princess, and although I remember very few details about the plot, I do remember that it was illustrated and there was music and dancing involved.

At about the same time I created my first story, I discovered Nancy Drew and my love for reading was born. It has only grown over the years, and I am rarely without a huge to-be-read stack, and a book within easy reach.

I'm a USA Today Bestselling Author of award-winning women's fiction and young adult novels. All of my stories combine romance, mystery, and paranormal elements. The paranormal, because it's a huge part of my life, the adventure and romance because I haven't ever outgrown my early reading adventures with Nancy, Ned, Bess and George.

I live in the frozen north with my husband, whose TBR stack is taller than mine, and two felines who have been known to add entire pages to a manuscript without telling me.

    Love it! A real enjoyable page turner.

    This was a fun book to read. Main character, Everly Gray, is well written and very likable. She has a spooky gift, when she touches people with her fingers she can "see" what's on their mind and what they've been doing. Story has El (her nickname) getting involved in solving a mysterious murder. Romance is added in and things get more complicated and well, you'll have to read the book. Plenty going on to keep you interested all the way through. I can't wait to read the next Everly Gray book and hope there will be many more in the series. Highly recommend.

    Gem of a book! Get yours!

    LOVE LOVE LOVED it!! A true gem, I picked this book up as a .99 cent special and I am THRILLED I did. Everly is an awesome lovable character. Her friend Violet, an "innocent" PI is a great supporting character. See, Everly has this "hinky" touch thing, every time she touches things with her finger tips she "sees" into people's lives, mostly the past. She is a counselor (daytime profession) but other than that she stays at home where those hinky fingers can't get into trouble. Until one day....

    Read it!

    Know what this novel needs? MORE READERS. It is a sparkling gem of a book with a great premise, awesome characterization, and stellar writing. Main character Everly Gray has a gift, although she doesn't always see it that way. When Everly touches people with her fingertips, she sees images of their lives. Her psychic fingers, which she refers to as her "hinky touch thing", come in handy in her profession as a personal coach, but as far as social situations, she's become a bit of a recluse. She goes out of her way to avoid touching people (because she REALLY doesn't want to know), but can't resist letting her fingers do the walking when she meets hunky photographer, Mitch. What she doesn't expect to "see" when she touches him is murder. Can Everly use her hinky touch thing to solve a murder, land the hunk, and keep her sanity? With help from best friend and PI extraordinaire, Violet, just maybe she can. A Touch of Ice has it all: drama, humor, mystery, breathtaking pace, a wonderfully original voice, and includes one of the best-written "best friend" relationships I've ever read. I could hang out with the very thoughtful Everly and Violet forever and a day. And, for that, I am bestowing A Touch of Ice with each and every available star. Bravo!

    Excellent Read - fun and captivating

    I just finished this book - I hope L. J. writes more with these characters. It reminds me slightly of Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye but with a twist. I love the way the book flows and you can see inside Everly's head. I think there could have been more done with the bad guy character and the ditzy Shelley but overall excellent. Deals with trust, faith, and belief of psychics - the main character is excellently portrayed to be likeable and impressive. Great book.

    A great read!

    I found myself rooting for these characters from the very first page. L.J. Charles does a fantastic job of showing the reader how Everly's gift can be both beneficial and problematic. I loved the fact that Everly is willing to risk her own safety to help solve a mystery.

    The sexual tension between Mitch and Everly absolutely sizzles. This is a wonderful book to curl up with.

    Read this one and find a great cast of characters. Enjoy!

    I could not get past chapter 3. The plot was boring & disorganized. The characters were not memorable & I did not care what happened to them. The writing style was blunt & un sophisticated. This is the only time I was unable to finish a book. (Honest Review)

    The story line was good. The writing style was a bit fragmented, however I did enjoy the read. L.J. Charles writes like you've know her all your life and can finish her thoughts, however in reality you get lost at times. I wish there was a bit more character development, especially between El and her two male interests. Her interest in one really came out of left field and seemed like an afterthought.  Because I liked the story and the character, I bought book two and will give the author another chance.

    Good read

    A Touch of Ice had an intriguing story line, decent character development, and kept me reading late into the night! Highly suggest if you like action, a bit of the pranormal, and romance.

    Delightfully intriguing books about friendship, intrigue, romanc

    Delightfully intriguing books about friendship, intrigue, romance and a little touch of ….something special. Everly Grey has been almost hiding in her home for the last 10 years. She has a little problem; she has a psychometric talent. Imagine never being able to visit a hospital for fear of accidentally touching something that has been part of a tragedy. Imagine never being able to touch someone you care about without being afraid of invading their privacy. Every person and thing she touches sends her images of recent happenings or strong emotion. Everly faces these concerns every day and has become a reclusive life coach to try to use her talent to help people. That is until one day in the middle of a coaching session she gets two images unrelated to her client, one an image of her future self and the other a vision of a murder victim.
    Dealing with the images sends Everly into a word of suspicion and danger. As she meets a man with the same image in his mind, Everly would turns upside down. Using her “normal” senses she soon discovers that, the man she is attracted to has secrets that he cannot share, the sexy doctor who cares for her in the emergency rooms is more than he seem, and the most disturbing of all, her best friend is not who she claims to be. On top of these discoveries, Everly discovers that her friend and neighbor have an undefined connection to the detective investigating the murder.
    The sexual tension is hot but the sex is not graphic.
    The author is a new one for me but she is on my list from now on.
