Faith, Hope, Laughter ... and Happily Ever After

Readers are loving Laura Hile's joyous Austenesque Regency novels. Her signature style---intertwined plots, cliffhangers, and laugh-out-loud humor---keep them coming back for more.

The comedy Laura comes by as a teacher. There's never a dull moment with teen students!

All of Laura's books are enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.

Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and sons. Her fiction is for everyone, even teens.

"Why it Takes True Grit to Read This Book
Okay, so it doesn’t. It takes true grit to live it. Yep, this trail blazer’s (okay, hiker’s) memoir makes me feel lazy. Still, there was that moment, brief though it was, that I thought, “I should at least h..." Read more of this review »

Cousin Emma by Perpetua Langley

Susan Elizabeth Phillips
“When did my house turn into a hangout for every grossly overpaid, terminally pampered professional football player in northern Illinois?"

"We like it here," Jason said. "It reminds us of home."

"Plus, no women around." Leandro Collins, the Bears' first-string tight end emerged from the office munching on a bag of chips. "There's times when you need a rest from the ladies."

Annabelle shot out her arm and smacked him in the side of the head. "Don't forget who you're talking to."

Leandro had a short fuse, and he'd been known to take out a ref here and there when he didn't like a call, but the tight end merely rubbed the side of his head and grimaced. "Just like my mama."

"Mine, too," Tremaine said with happy nod.

Annabelle spun on Heath. "Their mother! I'm thirty-one years old, and I remind them of their mothers."

"You act like my mother," Sean pointed out, unwisely as it transpired, because he got a swat in the head next.”
Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Match Me If You Can

“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”

Tom Clancy
“Success is a finished book, a stack of pages each of which is filled with words. If you reach that point, you have won a victory over yourself no less impressive than sailing single-handed around the world. ”
Tom Clancy

C.S. Lewis
“Whenever you are fed up with life, start writing: ink is the great cure for all human ills, as I have found out long ago.”

“If you can write each day, do it, and meet a quota. Minimum 350 words a day. A baboon can do 350 words a day. Don’t be shown up by a baboon”

Laura Hile I know, right, Sophia Rose? Thanks!

Darcy was fun to write--and I am astonished to discover that so many readers share my quirky sense of humor.

Sophia Howdy, Laura!

Just realized we weren't 'friended' here on GR. Had to do it. Haha!

Congrats on the new book! My book buddies who have read it are enthusiastic and shared a lot of love for it so I know I'll love your P&P/Freaky Friday Mash-up to death. :)
