Meet L.D. Zane

L.D. served in the Navy from 1968 to 1975. Five of those years were aboard the Fast Attack submarine, U.S.S. Queenfish,

SSN 651. His first submarine mission was an under-ice expedition to the North Pole — an adventure few will ever experience.

L.D.’s life is quieter now. He is retired and has been devoting more time to writing novels and short stories — something he didn't start until his early 60s.


He resides with his wife in the town of his birth — a small city in southeastern Pennsylvania known for its steel, textile machine manufacturing industries, and pretzel bakeries.

His short stories have been published in over a dozen literary journals, including: Indiana Voice Journal, Slippery Elm, Cobalt ReviewEvening Street Review and Philadelphia Stories. L.D. is a member of the Bold Writers and has had several public readings at Albright College, Reading, PA. 

Read about his latest anthology, It's Always My Fault, published by Pretzel City Press LLC.

Why Does L.D. Write?

“I believe all stories — like people — have a destiny. They both end the way they’re supposed to.”
