About L.E. Waters

L.E. is the author of four novels of the Infinite Series–a reincarnation fantasy saga. She received her degree in Animal Behavior, which to her father’s prediction, she only uses to raise her two children and menagerie of animals. She loves so many things and now writing is the passion keeping her up at night and her excuse for not cleaning the house.

Besides referring herself in the third person, she is now furiously writing the fifth and final book of the series, Infinite Salvation.

To spice up this about me page I thought it would be a great idea to list all the random things I divulged after an award nomination—I’m a believer that you can get to know a character best through their idiosyncracies:

* I am NOT a morning person. I’m more like a reptile that crawls out and needs to warm up a bit before moving.

* I can read palms :)

*My first celebrity crush was on the fox from the Disney Robin Hood movie (I know…disturbing…but he is pretty cute).

* I went to the library everyday at our summer vacation house and read every book in the children’s library. (I should probably note that I was a child when I did this or it sounds pathetic.)

* I was a tomboy when I was little. Actually, I’m still slightly tomboyish.

* I was a vegetarian during college and gained 15 pounds since I ate mostly Paul Newman’s chocolate bars and organic chips. (I can’t make this one sound better…it’s definitely pathetic)

* I love using children’s parties as an excuse for dressing up in embarrassing costumes.

* I would love to travel more, but I hate to fly.

* I can’t wait to get some chickens and ducks (although, apparently my husband can!)

* I almost exclusively wear yoga clothes and I’ve never taken a yoga class :)

* I sometimes sleep with a light on to ward away a pesky ghost (it works!)

* Great White sharks scare the bejesus out of me

* I’m addicted to buying architectural salvage

* I must be word-verification disabled (it usually takes me five or six times to ‘solve’ them!)

* I once had twenty cats at one time (in my defense I lived on a farm and rescued them all from death row). I’ve decreased my cat hoarding tendency down to two now, but most likely will go back to my cat-habit once my kids are grown.

* I once took out kayaks with my little sister on a vacation and we didn’t realize until we turned to go back into the harbor that the current was super strong. Instead of choosing to be stranded on one of the goat-inhabited sand bars, we clung on to a huge cruise ship that we drifted out to. I sent my little sister up to get help as I held onto the ship and both kayaks like the hulk. We found out later it was one of the most expensive cruise ships in the world. We gave all the old rich folks a thrill for the day; a pathetic rescue at sea.

* Ruth Chew was my favorite author when I was little. She has some of the best supernatural ideas ever. Buy them to read with your kids!

* I once had a pet snapping turtle named Spike.

* I’m mostly of Irish heritage, which does not explain why I look Spanish/Hawaiian/Native American (someone’s got some explaining to do!)—see above photo for proof^

* When I was young I didn’t wear any shoes all summer—hmmm…explains hobbit feet now.

* I’m unable to listen to AM radio, the frequency is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

*Favorite Color: Silver Sage (thank you Restoration Hardware for addicting me to this color)

*Favorite Animal: Oh, this is so hard. I love so many. If I had to pick, I’d say Canada Geese. I raised an orphaned one when I was little and she has a special place in my heart.

*Favorite Number: 7

*Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Lattes (I have a whole post about this)

*Facebook or Twitter: Ugh, I have to start to use these more, but I feel ancient when it comes to technological thingies (it’s a miracle I’ve figured blogging out)

*My Passions: Writing, reading, animals, hiking, family, antiques, gardening, and crafty stuff.

*Getting or Giving Presents: Giving. I get such a thrill out of finding the perfect present for someone.

*Favorite Pattern: Wow, I’ve never thought of this before. I have to say ribbons and roses.

*Favorite Day of the Week: Saturday, since my husband’s home and I actually get some writing time!

*Favorite Flower: Pansies

  1. I am very interested in reading your books and was just curious how much your religious faith influences your work, if at all. Do your characters represent particular biblical personas? Alternatively, are your writings non-sectarian?

    Thanks so much.

    • Thanks so much for your interest, Steve. My religious faith is very open minded. I’ve read widely on different religious beliefs and I’ve come the ambiguous conclusion that the afterlife could be many different things. I have a hungry curiosity for all things reincarnation and numerous books, wise people, and unexplainable events have influenced my series. None of my characters are based on biblical personas (at least, not consciously). I didn’t want these books to come across as preachy to anyone or attempt to change anyone’s beliefs. I only aspired to play with the idea and demonstrate—if reincarnation were possible—what it might be like. I love to hear that my books make people think because that is the greatest power a book can have 🙂 I hope you enjoy Infinite Sacrifice and please let me know what you think!

  2. Hello, Lauren. I just finished reading Infinite Sacrifice. I LOVED IT. I have always believed in reincarnation, mainly because I actually remember small parts of what I believe are some of my past lives and how I actually died in them. I have often thought of writing a book about the topic, but you have accomplished this before me. Thank you for writing this wonderful series. I will definitely read them all. By the way, have you never noticed that people who are open to the Spiritual are usually animal lovers?

    • Hi, Jackie! Thanks so much for such a wonderful review. I wrote this series just to connect to readers like you. Please, please, please write your book! I’m so intrigued to hear your story. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a reincarnation genre? I would read every book! If you don’t write a book, you’ll have to email me and tell me your experiences. I can never get enough of past life memory stories. I had to write this series because of my experiences and I knew there would be other souls like you that would enjoy it. You’re absolutely right, every spiritual person I know loves animals (and I find the opposite is usually true too!). I have also noticed that they tend to respect antiques and vintage objects/houses more as well. I think spiritual people can sense an energy in everything. Keep me posted if you ever write that book 🙂

  3. Hi, Lauren.
    First off, I wanted to thank you for answering my post. I must say that I really didn’t expect such a prompt and gracious reply. You’ve made me feel like we just might be kindred spirits. I don’t know if I will ever see my story in print, but you did inspire me to at write down some of my memories … so that’s at least a start. It seemed that the more I wrote down, the more I remembered and the more patterned my lives became. I’ve come to the conclusion that one of the lessons I am meant to learn in this lifetime is that I CAN be self-sufficient, after outliving three abusive husbands. They each died of cancer some years after I left them, and I jokingly have said that “They just couldn’t live without me.” LOL Another lesson I think I am suppose to master is actually using the talents that I have, two of which are writing and painting. I actually do currently use them, but have never done so commercially. I should probably get my butt in gear soon though, as I just turned 65 in December and will probably only live another 40 years or so. Peace be with you, Dear. I’ll try to keep in touch. Thanks again!

    • These comments are the best part of writing! I LOVE to write back and connect with people who have not only bought my books but have taken the time out of their lives to read what I’ve dreamed. I never thought I’d ever actually publish my books. I just had to write this series for myself. First, do it because it fulfills something within in yourself and, then later, if want to share it with others, contact me and I can help you get it out there. Writing this series has been a dream come true for me and getting to talk to readers like you is amazing. I still can’t believe it. 65 will only give you more wisdom and perspective. You can do it! It is a wonderful journey and I wish you all the best. Be sure to write from your heart and don’t judge it (that’s what revising is for!). Keep me posted!

  4. Infinite Sacrifice – L.E. Waters
    Lauren E. Waters has assembled a well written collection of life stories based on her beliefs and understanding of the after-life experience. She has researched the time periods and cultures of each incarnation and blends these histories into a believable genre. She would do herself a great favour by reading some of the works by Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God, for further insight into what lies ahead in the spiritual evolution of mankind. A very enjoyable read that keeps you looking forward to each new chapter. I would assess 3 out of a possible 5 stars.

  5. Hi Lee, I chanced upon your blog from an ‘ol bookmark’ from when I saw your book on CreateSpace, which I use now solely. I understand why Lakota Indians for your first book was chosen. Currently I am reaching out to reviewers to review EXILED To Earth (Sci-Fi) with reincarnation at its core, and The Reincarnation of Edgar Allan Poe (Non-fiction). If interested, please let me know what terms would satisfy you. Chaz (C. Van Heyden) Blog: heydenwrites.com

  6. Madam my name is Srijani Ghosh. I read your book infinite sacrifice… And I love it soo much . I leave in Kolkata of West bengal… India. I searched vigorously your other books of infinite series. But they are not available in our region till date… As well as in e book form. Please madam can you take any initiative if possible, so that we the readers, can get the opportunity to enjoy your excellent writing pieces. Thanking you.

    • Hello Srijani,

      Thank you so much for your kind words and for letting me know that my ebooks were unavailable to your region. I assumed they were available in all areas of India on Amazon. I’ve written to Amazon to find out why they aren’t available and I’ll let you know what they say and how we might fix this problem.
