L. J. Shepherd
L. J. Shepherd lives in Cardiff with her rescue cat, Coral. She studied English Literature at Christ Church, Oxford. After graduating, she decided to pursue a career in law. While studying to become a barrister, she taught martial arts on a part-time basis. When she had time, she would write. She began practising as a barrister in 2017, and has enjoyed a mixed practice. The most dubious of pleasures, however, has been in googling her name + “Crown Court” and discovering the imaginative array of headlines awarded to her cases. As ever, the comments section is where the real intrigue lies.
L.J’s debut dystopian thriller, THE TRIALS OF LILA DALTON, will be published by Pushkin Vertigo in Spring 2024.
