The Scoop

I’m the author of the Shadow Series & the Starjump Series and Winnemucca, a small-town fairy tale and have a few upcoming releases which I’m really excited about.

13 ON HALLOWEEN (Shadow Series #1) is about a girl who gets a birthday gift that’s literally out of this world. I love this book because it takes a look at one girl’s quest for popularity, no matter what the cost.  In SHADOW SLAYER (Shadow Series #2), Roxie is one year older and finds the agony of fitting in at high school nothing compared to saving the world from the shadow apocalypse. I’m really excited about the upcoming release this October MOON KILLERS, book 3, because it features Roxie as she begins her 500 year reign as The Shadow Slayer and tries to master the elusive art of moon killing.

TRANSFER STUDENT (Starjump Series #1) is an intergalactic tale of beauty and the geek. This book is near and dear to me because it explores the greatest mystery in the galaxy––what do boys think about girls? And, vice-versa. Ashley & Rhoe find out their answers to this galactic question by swapping lives, and bodies. I look forward to writing book 2 in the series which I hope to complete early 2014.

WINNEMUCCA, A SMALL-TOWN FAIRY TALE is inspired by my life-long love of a little-known town and my equal love of enchanted teenage road trips. I love this book because it’s about Ginny awakening to her own intuition and following it to places she’d never expect. The Seven Caves & Other Spine-Tingling Short Stories, is a compilation of my most popular ghost stories. Recently, a lost excerpt from Shadow Slayer has been featured in a paranormal romance anthology called Midnight Surrender.

I will have short stories featured in two upcoming anthologies, one releases this Christmas, and look forward to releasing my first adult title this September. Raiders of The Lost Arc meets Thelma and Louise in THE STORYTELLERS an adult romantic suspense novel where four storytellers unknowingly evoke the powers of a Mayan idol that breathes real life into their stories. Now the women’s lives depend on surviving each other’s stories, defeating an ancient demon and solving a centuries-old mystery. But some stories have a life of their own…

Here’s a little bit more about my books and where to buy them. Thanks for your interest and I hope to connect with you sometime soon. Click here for my contact info.

  1. Laura, the SCBWI GGF retreat was life-changing and I’m so glad to have met you there. Checking out your amazing work. Winnemucca is one of my favorite places, too!

    • Alexa! So happy to meet you last weekend :) Yes…GGF is going to be a BIG part of my writing life every year! Thanks so much for your kind words, my friend, especially coming from such a talented poet as yourself. I loved Winnemucca for its literary style. I never intended to write that way, Ginny just whispered her story to me and I wrote it down. xoxo Let’s stay in touch! ((hugs))
