L.J. Young was born and raised in Melbourne with an older brother and sister, which is why she's very loud. She spent most of her early years on a skateboard or at the beach.
She started writing her first book when she was 12-years-old, with her best friend Leah. It was always going to be confusing so, from then on, she decided to write on her own.
Since then, Leah has written many manuscripts, thousands of advertisements and a few articles. She's also lived overseas, studied Film and TV and attempted to wear fake eyelashes with decorum.
She now lives in Yarraville with her own alpha male, Greg, and their three daughters, Mazzy, Lulu and Poppy, who think it's, like, ace, that their mum is published!
