Lisa Jane Smith (usually known as L.J. Smith) is a popular American author of young-adult fiction that combines horror, fantasy and supernatural romance genres. Best known for The Vampire Diaries, she went on a ten year hiatus from writing in 1998 due to illness, leaving her latest series, The Night World, incomplete, though it is now scheduled for release in (hopefully) 2014.
