ABOUT LAURA elizabeth

Laura is a lover of all things swoony. A fan of romantic comedies, her own stories tend to employ a little more angst and heartbreak because life is tough but, despite that, love stories happen every day. She's inspired by the people around her who share their own stories and give her lots of material to work with. She hasn't, however, ever killed off a "fictional" character for karma's sake.

She might someday. 

Her current project, which is untitled because let's face it, often times titles change (little fact for readers) is more in keeping with her romantic comedy interest. Her favorite tropes are enemies-to-lovers, small towns, second chances, and alpha-type males with the hearts of teddy bears (because teddy bears do have hearts). 

Laura also moonlights as a yoga instructor. When not teaching, working her day job, or writing as an independent contractor, you can find her practicing her own yoga asanas or out in natures. Like a puppy, her favorite thing is to walk. And cuddle her main squeeze. She lives in the Midwest.
