Laurie grew up in southern California. Shortly after graduating from university, she traveled to Loei, Thailand to volunteer as an English teacher with the U.S. Peace Corps for two years. Soon after she returned to California, she met and married a wonderful Swiss man. She’s lived in Switzerland since 1997, works as a freelancer in the pharmaceutical and medical device industry, and writes fiction, non-fiction, flash fiction, short stories, poetry, and everything in-between… every chance she gets.

She’s a member of the Geneva Writers Group, a regular contributor to The Woolf Quarterly, and a PAL member of SCBWI.
