I write for no other reason than I simply must.  Words afford me the opportunity to articulate things which I otherwise cannot.  My writing would not be what it is today without the friendship of an amazing group of exceptionally supportive fellow scribblers.  So here you will find more than just my utterings.  You will also find guest posts, interviews, and tales from some very talented people I have been fortunate enough to cross paths with.

Welcome to my world, and thank you for visiting…

I think the draw to A Thirty-Something Girl–beyond Ms. Stull’s fantastic writing–is the ‘realness’ of the characters and story. This is not to say it’s everyday or forgettable, nothing like that; rather, it offers an unflinching look at the trials, tribulations and, most importantly, triumphs of adulthood through a character, Hope, that is relatable. That we instantly connect with. That we root for. And this is a testament more than anything to Ms. Stull’s storytelling ability, keeping us hooked from page one.” ~ Robert James Russell, Author of Sea of Trees

“L.M. Stull, in her debut novel, A Thirty-Something Girl, has penned a literary classic. Strong words for what could be called a Chick-Lit Romance, but true none-the-less. The realistic emotion portrayed throughout creates more of a personal essay / memoir feel than fiction. The characters are as Hemingway demanded “more real than real.” I was immediately drawn into the life of Hope, a woman trying to survive turning thirty as her life implodes. This novel could well be used as a textbook of well written prose. If you are a writer, in any genre, read it. This is how it is done” ~ Maxwell Cynn, Author of CybrGrrl

“L.M. Stull has a knack for conveying raw emotions into elegant prose. This collection of short stories and poems will enlighten and frighten you to feel all the sensations life has to offer; pain, joy and everything in between” ~Jennifer L. Jennings

“L.M. Stull includes a quote from Hemingway at the beginning of this book: “In order to write about life, first you must live it.” After reading “Contemplations,” it is easy to see that L.M. Stull has met Hemingway’s requirement for writing about life” ~ Tom Fowler
