Hi, I’m Laurie.

As a New England native who once dreamed of raising my family in Europe, I’m a walking testimony to God’s sense of humor, since I now live (quite happily) in Montana with my husband, two daughters, and our mellow Alaskan Malamute.

Though I’ve been crafting stories from a young age, I found renewed joy once I combined my year-round love for Christmas with an unused BA in German, and the seed was sown for my debut novel, Tinsel in a Tangle. When I’m not immersed in my latest WIP (Work in Progress) or honing important life skills as a stay-home mom, you can find me knitting anything from clothes to toys, or creating dioramas for my 16-inch poseable dolls.

Come visit me on Facebook, Twitter, or on my blog, scatteredwhimsy.com, where I post about my crafty creations and share my highs and lows as a writer battling (overcoming!) negative thinking.
