I live on a island in the Puget Sound with my husband and my dogs. I am a retired teacher, presently doing in -home care for disabled people while volunteering at a dog rescue

My degree is in art, and I am a painter, graphic artist, and ceramic sculptor. The writing started about five years ago, a surprise to me and everyone who knows me, since I had never written anything before.

I think I learned to write by reading. I am a voracious omnivore of books.

Excerpts from a recent review of The Eclipse Dancer (Reader's View):

Some things are just not taught and Koerber’s writing is one of those things–she has a gift.

Soul-stirring and bewitching, “The Eclipse Dancer” by Laura Koerber is an enchanting story that carried me away to another world for just a few days but will linger in my thoughts for some time to come.

This is one of the most captivat... Read more of this blog post »

Stolen Legacy is a fun, quick read. The story is based on the myths about kelpies and sirens, and is set in a quasi-Medieval alternative reality.

The book reads like the re-telling of a folk tale. There’s an old fashioned feel to the word choice and

“Be not too hard
For life is short
and nothing
is given
to man.
Be not to hard
When he is sold and bought
And must manage as best he can.
Be not to hard
For soon he dies
Often no wiser than he began.
Be not too hard
For life
Is short
And nothing is given
to man.”
