About Laura

Between my Ghost Gifts trilogy and other books, I’ve published eight novels. Author? Maybe. In truth, I’m a girl from Long Island who fell in love with the South and ended up calling New England home. Along the way, ideas emerged, leading to the titles noted on this website.

"...No ordinary romance, and no ordinary suspense or thriller either, the author casts her spell as the reader is taken on an exciting superbly paced novel that is un-put-down-able. Entrancing, intense and riveting."

—The Great Read
on Ghost Gifts

“In the highly anticipated sequel to her bestselling Ghost Gifts... Foretold artfully weaves the past and present, bound together by otherworldly ‘gifts’ that, in various forms, often come at a grave price. A fast-paced read with a jaw-dropping twist that I never saw coming.”

—Kristina McMorris, New York Times Bestselling author

"l’m always amazed when I read a work of fiction where the author has created a world that comes to life...  Those are the best kinds of reads.  That’s what this author has accomplished with Unstrung.

—Romance Dish

“An engaging writing voice, realistic characters and a compelling mystery make this a must-read! Aubrey and Levi are compelling and likable, both individually and as a team, and the way their stories intersect increases the appeal. Just the right blend of emotion and humor combine with captivating suspense for a paranormal mystery that is sure to delight fans. The flashbacks heighten the tension and deepen the poignancy, and the romantic angle has a great slow-burn passion.”

—RT Book Reviews, Top Pick

on Unstrung
