L.D. Davis grew up in a small town in New Jersey. She entertained her friends and teachers with her short stories and enormous imagination. Mrs. Davis completed her first novella-length story at the age of twelve, or thirteen—she can’t remember exactly when because that was a million years ago. Over the years, she started but didn’t finish a multitude of stories, many of which she still has tucked away in a box in her closet, along with all the clothes she doesn’t fit anymore or are no longer in style but she cannot find the fortitude to toss away. In 2011 L.D. read a series by Amanda Hocking, a self-published successful author, and for the first time believed she might be able to do this writing thing, like, for real. In April of 2012 she released her first full novel to the public with a crappy cover and her silly heart full of hope. Eight months later, after a cover change, Accidentally On Purpose reached the New York Times Best Seller’s list and almost all of LD Davis’s dreams had come true. All she needed was the sprawling home on a tropical island to complete the picture. Sadly, she is still waiting for a genie to grant her that final wish.
