Laura Haglund is a native of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. Born on a rocky peninsula, she was always fascinated by...rocks. That, with a love of nature and a fondness for foraging, grew into a preoccupation with prehistoric life. An avid reader as long as she can remember, the author devoured mountains of science fiction and fantasy but found too little fiction that treated stone-age people in a satisfying way.
Eventually, after a sudden spate of writing fan fiction parodies based on the characters of a well-known writer of prehistoric fiction, one of her original characters demanded to have his own story told properly.
Ms. Haglund also works for NAMI of Door County, does free-lance web design and graphic art, and has a computer repair business on the side. She is better known on the Web as Matera the Mad.

OMFG, loved it. Very well handled humor, and the best writing I've sampled all day. An excellent appetizer -- I really do want more.
