Laura writes mostly literary fiction and humor. Her most recent adventure is a YA novel fusing gender identity and time travel, for which she received the 2016 Hecla Award for Speculative Fiction from the Colorado Writing School. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies from The American University and a Master of Science in Management from Colorado Technical University. She's had a number of exciting jobs both stateside and overseas, but none can hold a candle to writing.
Laura’s poetry is featured in the Sunrise Summits anthology, and also at https://deankmiller.com for National Poetry Month. Her maiden attempt at writing flash fiction won first place in the Poudre River Public Library District's 2016 "Spooky Stories" contest. Her award-winning entry, “Firmly Rooted Policy,” is available for checkout as an eBook. “One Person, One Vote” will be published in Jason Brick’s Flash anthology, due for release in July 2017.
