Laura Rae Amos is a Michigan native now living near Washington DC with her charming husband and tornado of a little boy. After studying creative writing at the University of Toledo, she moved to the suburbs of Detroit to have a baby instead of an MFA. She is a blogger, web-fiction writer, poet, occasional musician, photographer, dabbling artisan, and all around creative distraction. When not writing, she loves to read, take photos, climb mountains (okay, little ones!), go on road trips, play guitar, draw, and build elaborate neighborhoods for her Sims.

Laura writes kooky and emotional relationship dramas, character-rich stories that are sweet, sassy, sometimes sad, and a little bit crass. She has nineteen books in her head and needs to lear

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
Søren Kierkegaard

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
Marilyn Monroe

“Love at first sight is easy to understand; it's when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.”

“Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape.”
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
