About Laina Turner

As a child Laina thought she would either be a truck driver (thanks to Jerry Reed in Smokey and the Bandit) or work at Taco Bell (her favorite restaurant as a child). As she grew older she realized her talents lay in academics and business and for the last several years has been a business consultant and college professor where she uses the analytical side of her brain and not the side that makes up stories.

Through all her career choices she has continued to have a passion for writing. This stemmed from childhood whereas an only child she developed a vivid imagination spending most of her time making things up and thinking the Incredible Hulk lived in her closet.

Proud of her vast experiences in life from barrel racing to being on the dance team for a semi pro basketball team to being a mom of 2 amazing kids, she tells her family and friends that no one is safe from their escapades slipping in to her books.

Taking the plunge to write books (cozy mysteries and chick lit) that she actually lets people read in 2010, she has worked her way up to being a real author, having 5 fans (maybe 6 now). Her blog, The Art Of Living Fabulously, was launched to share the daily fun in the life of a Real Housewife of the Midwest along with the musing of other fabulous ladies.

Review by: Char on March 9, 2013 : (no rating)
When the author was asking for people the review her writings I said sure. Well, I never looked at the description so I had no idea what I was looking at as far a style. So, a lighthearted who done it it is. Presley is so existed when Cooper her boyfriend takes her on an all inclusive Mexican trip. The first morning they are there they wake up to a murder at their Resort. See how this work for them on their holiday for the harsh weather of Chicago. Really I would give it a 3 1/2 - 4 stars. For me it was a little slow.
