Laura grew up in southwestern Michigan and graduated from Eastern Michigan University in the 80's with a Bachelor of Science degree in geology.
Except for a year in Connecticut, she's lived in the Midwest all her life. Currently, Laura and her husband share their house with two very strange cats. When Laura isn't writing her next book, she's working at her day job, reading, singing in her church choir, or doing some variety of skiing. She's fond of long soaks in the tub, red raspberries, and deep blue skies.
