Laura Bradley Rede grew up the oldest of nine kids in a small town in Maine. She now lives in a little hippie-punk neighborhood of Minneapolis with her wonderful partner, their three amazing children, one Great Dane, one dachshund, and four city chickens. She is a winner of the Writers of the Future Award for fantasy and science fiction and the author of the YA paranormal romance DARKRIDE, and its upcoming sequel CROSSFIRE, as well as many YA short stories. She often quotes Bela Lugosi, the original Dracula, who said “I have never met a vampire personally, but I don’t know what might happen tomorrow.”
After all, a girl can dream.

Hey! Good news! My novella Beast in the Mirror is available even sooner than I had hoped. It's now up on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords! This 30k novella reimagines Beauty and the Beast as LGBT YA. Writing it was a real emotional challenge for me because I had to draw on my own experiences as an eating disorder survivor to get inside the head of Bella, a teen model who fell from grace with th...

Darkride by Laura Bradley Rede
"Updated review 1/31/13: When Crossfire, the second book in this series came out, I realized that I had forgotten too much of the first book to give the second book a fair shake. So I reread and enjoyed Darkride even more the second time. I read it..." Read more of this review »

" Thank you, Nereid! I really hope you enjoy it! "
Laura Rede and 12 other people liked Fred's review of In the Air (The City, #1):
In the Air by Crystal Serowka
"In The Air is the lovely, lyrical and intimate story of two young dancers at the prestigious Juilliard Academy. It prob seems weird to start my review out by mentioning where they go to school, right? But it's really not, because for both Natalia..." Read more of this review »

“I had to make you love me." His dark eyes meet mine. "What I didn't count on is falling in love with you.”

“The clock is ticking. I should be leaving right now. But what I want to do is take Cicely in my arms and press her up against me hard enough to make her not care that I'm messing up her lipstick. I want to pick her up and carry her back through that doorway. We're only a few strides from the couch, only one rip away from ruining that expensive fabric, the dress she must have bought to wear for him.”
Laura Bradley Rede, Darkride

“You think I can't pull it off, don't you? You think I'll look stupid next to someone like Luke. You think he's too good for me." This is my chance. I should say yes and make her hate me, kill her last bit of hope. Easy. Like staking a vamp. "I think you'll look beautiful." I turn away. "No one's too good for you. No one's good enough.”
Laura Bradley Rede, Darkride
