ABOUT ME

lauraw-1079.jpg

Hello, and thanks for stopping by! I live in Ann Arbor, MI, with my husband, son, and daughter. When I’m not writing or reading, you can find me hanging out with my kids, cooking (and eating!) vegetarian food, hiking through local nature areas, or doting on my rescue dog. 

I hold a BA in English from the University of Michigan and a JD from DePaul University College of Law. I’m a member of multiple writing groups, including International Thriller Writers and Sisters in Crime. My fascination with “things that go bump in the night” probably stems from watching too many scary movies when I was younger.

I now write primarily for adults. My first novel with Bookouture, Two Widows, was published in August 2020. It reached Amazon’s Top 50 overall and landed in the top ten on Kobo UK and Amazon Australia. She Lies Alone spent several weeks on Amazon’s top 100 in psychological fiction. Her Best Friend’s Lie reached Amazon’s Top 50 overall and was named a Top Read of 2021 by two influential book bloggers. My newest release, We Live Next Door, spent months on Amazon’s Top 50 psychological fiction charts and has millions of pages read on Kindle Unlimited. (Thanks, readers!)

Before signing with Bookouture, I independently published several novels. My suspense novel, Top Producer, was self-published in May 2020 and was named as a “Top Pick of 2020” by Reader’s Favorite Book Reviews and was named a Gold Medal Winner in Urban Fiction. It was also shortlisted in the 2020 CLUE AWARDS (CIBAs). My YA mystery series has also won multiple independent book awards. Most notably, Trail of Secrets was named a Finalist in the 2016 Next Generation Indie Book Awards - First Novel category. 

I love to interact with readers, writers, and animal lovers on my Suspense with a Twist Blog and on Twitter, TikTokFacebook & Instagram! Follow me on Bookbub to receive my monthly reading recommendations!
