About Laura

I am a 20-something novelist and short story writer with a penchant for strange metaphors. I regard my bookstore job as a proud dragon does her hoard. When I sing to myself and people say, “You’re too young to know that song,” I cheerfully respond, “My folks raised me right.”

My writings reflect my upbringing on classic rock, epic sci-fi/fantasy, and Colorado’s fantastic sunsets. I specialize in young adult speculative fiction with a feminist and LGBTQ twist.

When you just can’t get off the ground

So. I have all these feelings for you. And I want you to know about them. Because. That’s how it is. And all I want to be is honest with you.
