My name is Laura Regan and I write under the name L. M. Quinpool, author of two series - Children Of the Amulet and Calendrial.
I'm descended from two very artistic families which include writers, actors, musicians and graphic artists. I write under the name Quinpool because my great great uncle John Regan wrote under the name John Quinpool, author of "First Things In Acadia". Re-using the name gave my grandfather and his siblings great joy and I'm proud to carry the name on.
My first series Children Of the Amulet has three books already published in paperback through Ottawa publisher Baico Publishing. I hope to have my fourth book in the series I hope to put into paperback soon but for now it'll only be available with the other three on e-book. There are more already written in the series but they just aren't up to my personal standards and therefore not ready for print or digital books.
My second, more Canadian series, Calendrial will be soon made available through e-book only until such time as it's possible to publish in print.
In everyday life I'm a Linguist and psychology major. I'm also a web designer, music lover, photographer, and graphic designer. I enjoy working with children of all ages, sizes and abilities and helping them reach their fullest potential despite "lables" or "social roadblocks" they may be faced with. I write about children because I believe they are an important of the past present and future. I believe it is imporant to encourage them to shoot for the stars and I hope my books will empower them with the strength to change the world. For this reason my cousin Sarah Jaworski (now age 19) creates my cover designs of the Calendrial series and she and her brother Christopher (then 12 and 14) co-designed the first 3 Children Of the Amulet books.
I very much hope you like my books and will pass the name Quinpool on to your family, friends and associates.
Thanks to Smashwords and Baico Publishing for making my publishing dreams come true.
