Laura L. Walker grew up in a large family in the beautiful Gila Valley of southern Arizona. From the time Laura was young, she spent hours drawing characters on paper and fantasizing about their adventures. Life became more serious, however, when Laura met her own hero and they eventually became the parents of six children. In between spurts of grocery shopping, sewing costumes or quilts, transporting kids to practices, and making dinner, Laura still enjoys putting her imagination to good use. She is the author of two contemporary romances. Visit her at http://www.lauralwalker.com for updates and more.

I will mull the scenario around in my head for days or, sometimes, even weeks before a new idea forms, showing me possibilities I had not previously considered.

When I am completely stumped, I grab a pen and paper and simply brainstorm. The classic web that my teachers taught in high school is my go-to method for this approach. When you see scenarios and the consequential actions or characters that are affected by such actions on paper, it becomes clear which direction you want to take.(less)

I love the creativity of being a writer! An active imagination was the coping method I engaged to get through my childhood, which was difficult at times. In my mind, I could act out a scenario that, in real life, didn't work out so great for me. In my fictional setting, however, that same scenario concluded exactly the way I wanted it to. Now that I've enjoyed a small measure of success with my writing, I am finding that I like interacting with my fans (although most of them are personal acquaintances at this point). I look forward to meeting more people and traveling to different places to meet them. Best of all, I love the fact that my husband and children treat me the same as they before I became a writer.(less)

During this time of year I like to read--what else?--Christmas stories to help me feel the spirit of Christmas. Lately, I've even settled in for a Hallmark movie marathon (for me, that's six movies as I'm not much of a TV watcher). I can't help but feel "warm fuzzies" with each story that brings hope, comfort and love. However, with most of these stories, one important thing is missing: the sto... Read more of this blog post »

“The correct relationship will make a person bloom. He becomes more himself, his talents deepen, his personality grows, and he thrives. But the wrong relationship will produce the opposite. The things that were once so vital no longer matter. His talents disappear, his individuality fades, and he wilts.”
Jennifer Moore, Miss Burton Unmasks a Prince
