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.

My debut novel, TINSEL IN A TANGLE, won first place in the Holiday category of Royal Dragonfly Book Awards 2018, as well as Best First Book and Best Holiday Book in Literary Classics International Book Awards 2018. It was a finalist in both the Selah Awards 2018 and The Wishing Shelf Book Awards 2018. I’m currently working on the sequel. When not immersed in writing or honing important life skills as a mom and homemaker, you can find me knitting anything from clothes to toys, or creating dioramas for my 16-inch poseable dolls (Ellowyne Wilde, anyone?).

Connect with 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.
