About this author

Hello everyone, welcome to Goodreads. My name is Laura Crean, I am a single mum and an author, artist and poet. I love to read (when I can find the time LOL)- I especially like to read Science-Fiction and Fantasy but I also like Mystery-Suspense and I also love to read about the Paranormal, Ancient-History and Myths and Legends, books on Spirituality - basically I read anything!! LOL

I currently have 3 books of poetry for sale , my first children's Novel - a Fantasy Adventure (which is the first of, hopefully three.) And I am also currently involved in creating a series of Toddler and Infant books based in the same Realm as my Junior Novel. I also have some novels for older readers under way - So I have a lot going on and I love what I am do

OK – so I know this was a private message to my friend but I feel God saying to me that I must publish it in a public way because it may touch other people’s hearts, because it is how he is speaking to me right now. I feel like I am having to fight for my right to call myself a Christian. Some people both Christians AND non Christians may not like it, but to be honest I don’t care. I am trying...

The Realm of the Purple Dragon (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: This story is very close to my heart because it is inspired by my daughter Ellenor and her love of console gaming. In this book she is the heroine in her own story, being taken through a portal in her bedroom into the Realm of the Purple Dragon, the console game she had been playing while home from school, sick. The Realm is in fact an enchanted world where the gods of Norse mythology are real and magic is around every tree and over every rainbow, the bridges are pretty special too and have a tendency to take you to more than just the other side of the water! She meets some extremely colourful characters (literally) and is given a bag of magic runes which can turn into all sorts of magical things or summon magical creatures to help her on her journey. This book is ideal for young teenagers and pre-teens taking their first tentative steps into the fantasy genre as well as even the most hardiest of Fantasy reader just adding to their collection. This story will delight and intrigue any fantasy adventurer from aged 10 to 100.

1 chapters   —   updated Dec 27, 2011 07:48AM
Description: This book is a record of poems spanning 24 years. The highs and lows, spiritual, environmental and intensely personal reflections of the lifetime of one single mother on a mission - to use her voice!

Hi Zoe, thank you for asking. I have lots of projects on the go all the time and I flit between them depending on my mood LOL. I have a new poetry book out on Lulu.com and new kiddies books and I am trying to complete several novels at the same time, so yeah I'm quite busy. How about you? Xx Laura xX
