Welcome, L.K. Kuhl!

TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR BOOKS…

 

Hello everyone, I am Author L. K. Kuhl, and first of all I’d like to thank Highlighted Author for featuring me! It is wonderful to be here! I am from Nebraska and have been married to my high school sweetheart, Gene, for almost 30 years. We have a 10 year old son who keeps us young named Nathan, and Greg and Will, our furry dog kids. My husband and I also have two older daughters, Morgan and Brittani and son-in-law, Trevor. We also have 2 grand-dogs named Bentley and Lola. I have been writing for over twenty years. I first began writing children’s books and poetry, moved on to writing music, and am now writing Young Adult and Adult novels.
My husband and Mom both inspired me to write. I always felt I wanted to but didn’t believe I was good enough. They poked and prodded and soon, my first novel was born. My very first novel is called Chasing Butterflies and is about a young, local boy who was abused by his family. They eventually killed him. Social Services was called numerous times to the home, but nothing was ever done to help him. I wrote this story about his life and dedicated it to him. I hope to get it published one day soon.
I went on to write Everlasting, which is featured here. Everlasting is a Young Adult Paranormal Romance novel, and it is basically based on a true story as well. Here is my inspiration on why I wrote Everlasting:
My brother-in-law had passed away about 6 months before I began writing Everlasting. One night he came to me in a dream. He stood right beside my bed and I was able to ask him questions about what life after death was like. I asked him about 5 or 6 questions and his answers came back to me so real and lifelike, that I felt he was really there. Thus, Everlasting was born. I knew I had to incorporate his answers into a book. Although it is a work of fiction, some of his answers from my dream are in this book and I think you’ll find it intriguing.
Everlasting is the first book in a Trilogy and the second book, The Decision, should be out this fall.
Next, I moved on to an Adult Romantic Suspense Novel called Chasm. Chasm was just released on May 5th of this year. Chasm is also based on a true story and here is how it came to be:
I got the idea to write Chasm because my husband used to be an engineer for the railroad. Although my husband never worked with this gentleman directly, one of the engineers on the railroad hit and killed his wife and children with the train he was driving. It was no fault of the engineer. The wife did it deliberately to get back at her husband, the engineer. The engineer said the last thing he saw was his children looking up at him from the windows of the car.
Although this is a work of fiction, and this is just a story between two, fictional people, I felt compelled to tell his story about how utterly and completely devastating this would be. The engineer was never able to return to work after this.
So, most of my books are based on events that have happened in my life or in someone’s who is close to me. I hope that readers can feel the emotion in my books and take away from them that even though bad things in life happen, things will get better. Just don’t give up! Brighter days are ahead. Time does help heal. But all in all, I hope that readers enjoy my books. It’s the characters who write their own stories in my novels, and I am just their messenger, sharing it with the world.

Seventeen-year-old Sophia Bandell is scared of boys, and her biggest fear is dying. Boys make her uncomfortable and itchy and dying is …well …dying. She is ecstatic when her long lost friend calls her, inviting her to spend the summer with her on the beach at Charleston, South Carolina.
When a plastic saucer hits her in the head as she’s sunbathing, Sophia has no idea it will forever change the course of her life. It is there she comes face to face with the impressive Tate Forester.
She is scared and …itchy, but he’s gorgeous and she can’t shake him from her mind. They begin dating and Sophia soon knows he’s the one.
But things turn dark when she learns Tate isn’t the person she thinks he is, and the real reason her friend has brought her to the beach will teach her about life after death.
This everlasting summer on the beach gives Sophia a sweet taste of first love—the happiness as well as the heartbreak.

True love/young love

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow! This was a great read! Yes, it’s a paranormal story, but I enjoyed it a lot! It “felt” so real! From the minute I started the book, I was hooked. L.K. Kuhl–a brand new author for me–pulled me in as a reader. She kept it interesting, suspenseful and involved. I didn’t want to stop reading. I read it quickly because I “needed” to know the end! Now, I can hardly wait until the second book in this trilogy comes out! I am very pleased with Kuhl’s style of writing, and I look forward to reading more of her work. I highly recommend this book for a quick and enchanting read!

While L.K. Kuhl masterfully entraps you in this fantasy, she writes the characters in such a way that they seem so real, you swear you have known them your whole life. The mystery of the story kept me engaged, and I didn’t want to put this book down! Can’t wait to read the next one!!

 

 

5 out of 5 Stars! YA heading for the big screen…
By The Book Junkie Reads . . . on February 20, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
At 17, I was not thinking much of spending an entire summer away from my parents on the beach with my dearest friend. I certainly was not afraid of boys and dying was not even on my radar. L.K. Kuhl has brought me a beautiful, intriguing world of paranormal romance and fantasy wrapped in a subject that is not often approached by the young adults. Most young adults view themselves as invincible. Sweet Sophia is a realist and she knows dying is to be forever.

About the Author

 

Lexi

Lexi George writes snarky, Southern-fried paranormal romance for Kensington. Her debut novel, Demon Hunting in Dixie, was released in 2011, and a novella and two more demon hunter books followed. Demon Hunting in a Dive Bar, the third book in the series, was nominated for a RITA in 2014. The fourth book, Demon Hunting with a Dixie Deb, is due to be released May 24, 2016. Lexi enjoys reading and writing romance, but her first love is fantasy. A Meddle of Wizards is the story of Raine Stewart, a sheltered, sickly young woman who comes into her own when she’s transported to a magical world, discovers her burgeoning powers as an adept, and faces the evil wizard who killed her parents. Lexi’s day job as an appellate attorney requires reading transcripts filled with murder, mayhem, and worse. Perhaps this is why she enjoys stories filled with humor, action, adventure, and magical creatures. She has a violent aversion to sad movies, having been scarred by Old Yeller at the age of nine. She drinks tea, not coffee, and has never seen The Exorcist, because she is a world-class chicken. She is the third of four children, with all the attendant neuroses.
