Laura Jensen-Kimball is the mother of four children and married to Jeff. She was inspired to write after her youngest child was diagnosed with a speech delay. Books were a common tool used in improving his speech. Laura creates books with a touch of humor she feels both parent and child will enjoy. Living in Norwalk, Iowa, she is also a Registered Nurse currently pursuing her Masters in Nursing. This is Laura’s first published book and hopes to publish her other stories soon.

I like to write stories that relate to real life situations. Children do and say the "darndest things" and I swear you could write millions of stories based off of their actions and what they say. They are brutally honest and very humbling little people. Their presence is good for the soul. (less)
