Laura grew up in Michigan, but dove into a whirlwind romance just after college, which meant moving to southern Germany without a job, but with a lot of love (click here for the story--spoiler: it's really sweet). She and her husband married a blink of an eye later, and they have now lived there happily together for more years than seem possible.

By day, Laura manages process and system projects, and she's a mother of two. 

Nights and stolen daytime hours are devoted to living in her head: writing young adult science fiction and fantasy novels. Laura is a member of SCBWI.

For descriptions of her manuscripts, see Projects.
