About LL Lemke

My name is Laura Lemke, I’m a graduate of Carroll University with a degree in Writing.  I work as a freelance novelist and a martial arts instructor.  I’ve completed multiple novels now and constantly have multiple projects going on.  I love working in science fiction and fantasy – but what really drives my stories are the characters. I love being able to tell their stories and see how they develop throughout the story.

I have self-published three books – Opus Aria (2012), Opus Prelude (2013), and Convergence Point: where worlds meet (2014). They are available on Amazon – which has both hard copies and digital copies. They are also available on Smashwords – only digital copies.

My goal is to publish Opus Crescendo this year (2016) and Opus Requiem in 2017. I also have a visual novel in the works, though the publication date on that is a bit…nebulous. It’s still in the planning stages.

I also run a Patreon – which has a lot of the same material as here, however, there are a lot of exclusives to Patreon – like exclusive writing tip posts, fanfiction, sneak peeks of what I’m working on, writing tutoring, and a bunch of really cool goals planned on there, like a Patreon exclusive novel. It’s also a chance for me to have a steady income based on writing, basically, it’s getting me closer and closer to achieving some of my biggest goals. It’s worth taking a look!

Thanks for reading and happy writing!

  1. Nice blog, i’d like to suggest though that you try aikikai aikido while you’re onto taekwondo. compare and contrast and then decide for yourself which one would really be usefu in a real self-defense situation. 🙂


    • I’d love to try out aikido! There aren’t many places in the area that offer it though, so I usually end up looking through books or looking at videos online. 🙂

      I’m a strong supporter of finding the method of defense that simply works for you. I like to avoid the whole “x martial art is better than y martial art”, especially since comparing and contrasting is often more like comparing apples to oranges!

      Thanks for the comment and I’m glad you enjoy the blog. 🙂

    • I do not feel as though it would harm other fanfiction authors – its akin to artists taking commissions while other artists do not. It’s widely accepted that artists should not provide free art just because it was requested – why would it be any different with writers? Though I don’t know what sort of harm you’re referring to, would you mind clarifying for me?
