I have loved books for as long as I can remember. Picture books, poetry, chapter books, series. I love them all. Books nourish my soul.

As a writer of children’s literature, I have the privilege of adding to the Kidlit menu. My greatest hope is that my books will act as soul food for my young readers and their families.


Prior to becoming a children’s writer, Laura shared her love of books with her third grade students. After experiencing first-hand the power of story to captivate, amuse, and encourage, Laura knew that she wanted to create books for kids.

Laura is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. When she is not writing picture books about porcupines, pirates, and pickles, Laura can be found on a trail, at the library, or in the kitchen. She lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and their two sons.
