About Me

Laura has always been a storyteller. She began on her front porch, telling ghost stories to neighborhood kids.

Her settings are Western, but Laura grew up in the suburbs outside Detroit. A tomboy, she's always loved the outdoors and adventure. In 1980 she and her sister packed everything they owned into their Pintos and moved to California, sight unseen. There Laura met her husband, a motorcycling,Texas Aggie, and her love affair with the West began.

She rode a hundred thousand miles on the back of her husband's motorcycle, propping a book on his back and reading on the boring stretches. But you can't read all day and after awhile, her brain would empty of the day-to-day thoughts and cast about for something new to think about.

Then one day, riding into a small town in California, a dog ran in front of the bike. After a gut clenching scare, it trotted back the way it came and they rode on. But she started thinking. What if someone came along and hit the dog? And what if a girl riding a motorcycle came along . . .

The idea grew into Laura's first novel, Her Road Home. Laura is hard at work on a three book series set in the same small town, Widow's Grove.

Laura has since learned to ride her own motorcycle, and now owns two; Elvis, a 1985 BMW Mystic, and Sting, a 1999 BMW R1100. She's put a hundred thousand miles of her own on them, riding the back roads, getting to know the small western towns that are her book's settings.

On an annual pilgrimage to Texas, Laura was introduced to her first rodeo, and loved everything about it. She was even more excited to discover Pro Bull Riding was shown on television every week!

Her love of this sport grew into her Sweet on a Cowboy series; The Sweet Spot, Nothing Sweeter, and Sweet on you.

Ideas are still growing.
