L.G. Ransom is a Young Adult Science Fiction writer and author with Caffeine and Ink Books. Born in Miami, Florida but grew up living in various countries around the world – including England, Hungary, St. Maartin, and Montserrat.
She has a passion for genetics, genealogy, politics, and history, reflected often in her writing. LG’s own family roots are traced all the way back to the Mayflower (give or take a wiggle of the ancestry web tree) and her ancestors served in the Revolutionary War as well as both sides of the American Civil War.
In her five decades of life, L.G. has survived an erupting volcano (yes, she was there when Jimmy’s volcano blew), multiple bad-boy hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and cancer. She is an accomplished writer and humorist who self-published four novels before being signed to Caffeine & Ink for her Sentinel Dawn Series.
LG is an avid science fiction fan (especially vintage Star Wars, Sentai, and Star Trek), who is geekily proud to say she was there for the original release of Star Wars back in 1977(and a cosplayer way back when it was still a bit weird and not cool). Throughout her stories are hidden many “Easter Egg” nods to her favorite shows, characters, and actors.
LG is a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, a professional photographer and artist, a proud Lifetime Girl Scout, and a Hockey-mom-Pitbull-puppy (with lipstick). She is the mother of two (grownup…sort of) children, and a grand-aunt to four others. She lives in the suburbs of Washington DC with her husband, a precious senior-old-lady Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Samantha, Mr. T the wonder-love-rescue cat, and the notoriously evil Momojojo (the demon ninja-cat from hell, whom nobody loves but LG).
