June 2013


Found in the forest when she was young, Laura Thalassa was raised by fairies, kidnapped by werewolves, and given over to vampires as repayment for a hundred year debt. She’s been brought back to life twice, and, with a single kiss, she woke her true love from eternal sleep. She now lives happily ever after with her undead prince in a castle in the woods.

… or something like that anyway.

When not writing, Laura can be found scarfing down guacamole, hoarding chocolate for the apocalypse, or curled up on the couch with a good book.

I do intentionally try to leave the heroine's physical appearance as simple as possible. Partly, I want all readers to be able to see themselves as the main character (I could go into the whole diversity discussion and how certain minorities feel like outsiders because they don't see themselves in literature, but that's a long discussion, and best for another time)! I also think that focusing on a character's features (specifically a woman's) places more importance on her looks than her heart and head. And here in the land of steamy literature, one must leave the objectifying to the male love interests' windswept hair and rock hard abs. 😂 (Watch out for that double-standard!)

And now that I've answered your question, I realize I really have no basis to act as some sort of social right fighter ... I write morally gray enemies-to-lovers romances ... 😂 Anyway, that's the best I got! Thanks for reading!(less)
Laura Thalassa If all goes as planned, then Famine should release in spring 2020!

Awwww, thank you! As for your question, unfortunately at this time I am not. The books are too big to combine into one giant omnibus, and while a boxset would be freaking amazing, as an indie author, that's not something that self-publishing platform See Full Answer

The Vanishing Girl (The Vanishing Girl, #1) by Laura Thalassa The Vanishing Girl by Laura Thalassa

Every night after Ember Pierce falls asleep, she disappears. She can teleport anywhere in the world—London, Paris, her crush’s bedroom—wherever her dreams lead her. Ten minutes is all she gets, and once time’s up, she returns to her bed. It's a secret she’s successfully kept for the last five years. But now someone knows.

A week after her eighteenth birthday, when frustratingly handsome Caden Hawthorne captures her, delivers her to the government, and then disappears before her eyes, Ember realizes two things: One, she is not alone. And two, people like her—teleporters—are being used as weapons.

Dragged off to a remote facility where others like her live, Ember’s forced to pair up with her former captor, Caden, to learn how to survive inside until she can escape. Only Caden’s making escape seem less and less appealing.

But even as Ember falls for the boy who got her into this mess, she knows that she is running out of time. Because the government has plans for those like her, and those plans might just cost Ember her life.

The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower, #1) by Stephen King The Gunslinger by Stephen King

Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is King's most visionary feat of storytelling, a magical mix of science fiction, fantasy, and horror that may well be his crowning achievement.

Book I
In The Gunslinger (originally published in 1982), King introduces his most enigmatic hero, Roland Deschain of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger. He is a haunting, solitary figure at first, on a mysterious quest through a desolate world that eerily mirrors our own. Pursuing the man in black, an evil being who can bring the dead back to life, Roland is a good man who seems to leave nothing but death in his wake.

The Rook (The Checquy Files, #1) by Daniel O'Malley The Rookby Daniel O'Malley

"The body you are wearing used to be mine." So begins the letter Myfanwy Thomas is holding when she awakes in a London park surrounded by bodies all wearing latex gloves. With no recollection of who she is, Myfanwy must follow the instructions her former self left behind to discover her identity and track down the agents who want to destroy her.

She soon learns that she is a Rook, a high-ranking member of a secret organization called the Chequy that battles the many supernatural forces at work in Britain. She also discovers that she possesses a rare, potentially deadly supernatural ability of her own.

In her quest to uncover which member of the Chequy betrayed her and why, Myfanwy encounters a person with four bodies, an aristocratic woman who can enter her dreams, a secret training facility where children are transformed into deadly fighters, and a conspiracy more vast than she ever could have imagined.

Filled with characters both fascinating and fantastical, The Rook is a richly inventive, suspenseful, and often wry thriller that marks an ambitious debut from a promising young writer.

First Semester (Elton Hall Chronicles, #1) by Sarah Fischer First Semester by Sarah Fischer

Violet Carrington is a freshman at Elton Hall University, but she’s about to get more than just her degree…

Throwing herself into the insanity of college life, Violet makes new friends and even catches the eye of a handsome guy. Everything is as it should be, until one night out she crosses paths with a mysterious, sinfully attractive man. Not only does he manage to ignite a burning desire deep inside her, he also happens to be her new, off-limits college professor.

Professor David Berneli is only visiting Elton Hall, but a lot can happen in a year…

Everyone knows any personal relationship between professor and student is strictly prohibited. But somewhere in between lectures and after school events, Violet manages to dazzle him. She not only challenges David at every turn, but also tempts his every desire. No matter how hard they try to ignore the crackle of sexual tension between them, a few furtive glances quickly turn into clandestine meetings in his office.

By giving in to temptation, Violet and David fall deeper down the rabbit hole…

As the semester ticks on, Violet begins to question not only the whirlwind affair that threatens to consume them both, but David’s desires as well. If he’s not willing to risk everything for her, she’ll have no choice but to leave the comfort of his arms without looking back.

Before any decision can be made, a looming threat comes out of the shadows, putting her and the passionate relationship she has with her professor in danger.

Now Violet must fight for her own life, and for the one she wants to spend it with…

“I am one of billions. I am stardust gathered fleetingly into form. I will be ungathered. The stardust will go on to be other things someday and I will be free.”
Laini Taylor, Days of Blood & Starlight

“In Shoshone, there's a saying. It's a long one, and it doesn't have an English equivalent, so bear with me.

Sutummu tukummuinna. It means, I don't speak your language, and you don't speak mine. But I still understand you. I don't need to walk in your footsteps if I can see the footprints you left behind.”
Rose Christo, Why the Star Stands Still

“Maybe they would look at each other and feel some odd yearning, but neither of them would know why. They would want to stop, but they would be embarrassed, and neither would know what to say. They would go their separate ways. Who knew? Maybe that happened every day to people who'd once loved each other.”
Ann Brashares, My Name Is Memory

“One day you will ask me which is more important? My life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life.”
Khalil Gibran

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”

Umaiya ❄️Ramblings of a Scattered Mind❄️ I'll be honest, I didn't think you'd accept :p Thank you so much! :D

I've only read one of your books but I loved it! The only reason I haven't read The Bargainer series is cause it isn't finished and I am terrible at waiting. Instead, I hope to start the Fallen World series soon.

What I'm trying to say is, you're awesome and thank you so much for writing these amazing books. ^_^

Can't wait to talk books with you!


AℳY♔Queen of Fat cats♔민윤기's fiancé Thank you! I love your books!
