About Laura Shinn

My writing didn't truly begin until I became a junior in high school. A friend encouraged me to write a short story, like the one he was writing, and I gave it a shot. It was a spin-off between Mork and Mindy and Star Wars. Needless to say, my first attempt was pretty bad.

Over the next few years I read like crazy, mostly historical novels. I didn't begin reading contemporaries until I got married several years later. I decided I wanted to write a time travel like the one my favorite author had written. Constance O'Day Flannery became my first inspiration to become a published author. {Since then I have had the honor of meeting and learning from many different authors: Suzanne Brockmann, Madeline Baker, Christine Feehan, Michele Bardsley, Jo Beverley and many more.}

I love to read and the desire to write comes to me daily. New ideas for novels pop into my head at the most inconvenient times: in the shower and while driving my car (Oops! You didn't read that one...). The idea that you can create a magical or mysterious world with only the touch of your fingers to a keyboard delights me.

While in college, at Howard Payne University in Brownwood Texas, I majored in English {minored in Art} and wanted desperately to become a published author. I've continued to work on my writing and editing skills and hope to one day achieve the same level of talent as many of my favorite authors.

I have a wonderful husband (since 1986) and two boys, Josh (born 1991) and Nathan (born 1998). We currently live south of Fort Worth, TX. We have four dogs, three rescued from the local pound and a "toy-sized" puppy we named Elsie May.

Review by: Ginger Simpson on Feb. 01, 2011 :
Bravo Laura Shinn for reeling me in and keeping my attention throughout the story. That's always the sign of an awesome book. I truly enjoyed reading about Katie Goodman,her son, Byron,and handsome, lawman, Trent. This awesome romantic suspense will keep you reading in order to find out why the heroine and her son are on the run and who or what they are running from. The romance is realistic, the restraint believable, and the story balanced and well-written. Looking for a good read...look no further.

Review by: Larry Hammersley on Jan. 20, 2011 :
Ms. Shinn has spun a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Katie and her son, Byron wind up in Little, Texas and they must keep moving. Trent, the sheriff wonders why. The characters are well developed and the urgency for Katie and Byron to move on has the reader wondering just what happened that causes their constant running. We root for the characters despite some secret that Katie has and we want the sheriff and Katie to get together. A mixture of romance, humor and suspense makes this a good read.
