About Laurie

Laurie spent close to twenty years with a double life: Project Manager by day in the high-paced world of Information Technology -- author by night crafting heartwarming and inspirational love stories. Not to mention the roles of wife, mother of two remarkable boys, church choir member, PTO Vice President and Chair of the After Prom Activities Committee! She also sat and cheered at close to a hundred football games, fifty cross country meets, and probably a thousand baseball games.

Now, that's all changed. She retired from the day job, her kids grew up, and she and her husband moved from the cornfields of central Illinois to her favorite place in the world -- the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Now her days are filled with walking the beach, eating great seafood and writing novels that feature ordinary people made extraordinary by God.

Her inspirational romance novels have won numerous awards: the EPIC award for Best Spiritual Romance, the Illumination Book Awards for Best Inspirational Romance Fiction and the eLit Award for Best Religious Fiction. If you like your stories heartwarming, inspirational, beachy and warm, give her books a try:
