Laura wants you to follow her, but she confesses that it will not be a thrill-a-minute ride…yet. She admits to being an uninspired cook so she won’t be sharing recipes with you. And she can’t keep a plant alive for more than a few weeks, so gardening tips are also out. She’s terrible at crafts, fashion, decorating, and nearly everything else that would make her an interesting person to follow on social media.

But she writes stories about fascinating, flawed, fictional people and she can’t wait to share them with you someday soon.  In the meantime, she will post (via the blog link here) some of the more fun things she’s stumbled across while doing research for her books—as well as some random stuff that interests her but has no connection to her work at all. Thanks for stopping by.


Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
