Hi there, wonderful readers!
My name is Laurean Brooks, And I LOVE it when a story comes together!
I live in rural northwest Tennessee, a stone's throw from the Kentucky state line. Besides writing, I enjoy singing in the choir, reading, browsing flea markets with hubby, and walking in the woods with my two loveable Labs, Yipper and Riley.
After a fifth grade teacher announced to the class, "Someday, Laurie will become an author," I itched to create spunky, unique characters and outlandish situations--always with humor.
I'll introduce you to charming heroes who live to ignite the tempers of spitfire heroines, and to sassy heroines who are always ladies...though they do frequently choke on their own shoe leather.
You can be assured that all my stories will have a G rating. So snuggle up with your daughter, download a story, and get caught up in a sweet romance. Laugh, cry, relax, and enjoy!
Keep checking back. My shortstory "Jonquils in the Snow" will soon be posted here at Smashwords. I loved writing this one. The words flowed like honey. Hope your reading enjoyment equals mine while writing it.
JOURNEY TO FORGIVENESS, a historical, inspirational romance set in 1938, and released by White Rose Publishing in 2009, is Laurean Brooks' debut novel.
"Can a young woman with a haunted past embrace a future with the charming man who has stolen her heart? But is that all he has stolen?"
Journey To Forgiveness has received 5-star reviews at "You Gotta Read book reviews" and "Review Your Book.com"

Christopher's tenderness toward Roxanne touched my heart. My kind of hero. Christopher risked his own life to rescue her. I'd like to see this one made into a full length, complete with the battle with the pirates and the shark.
Miss Mae has done it again! Spun another exciting tale that will keep you on the edge until the very end.

I enjoyed this tender romance between Brad, the basketball player and Judy, the petite chemistry major. The way Brad took up for Judy made me long for a simpler time when men were Kights in shining armor who rescued their damsels in distress, and cherished them.
The chemistry between Brad and Judy is real enough to be felt. Mr. Hammersley has a gift for vivid description, whether it's a scene or the character's facial expression or his/her stance. I look forward to reading more of this talented writer's work.

Smitten with the modeling pictures he's seen of blonde beauty Gena, Dave Canter pays three grand for one dinner date with her. For the Indianapolis wood crafter, that's a large sum. But no amount of money is too much to just meet Gena.
Gena's attitude is cool at first and Dave's nervousness is apparent. But he remains the perfect gentleman.
It doesn't take long for Gena to realize that Dave's interest in her is genuine. Between Gena's flights to Paris, and other job-related trips, the two find time to be together.
Their relationship blossoms. Still, Dave hesitates to pop the question. What would a glamorous lady like Gena want with an ordinary wood crafter?
The story holds several surprises. I am impressed with Mr. Hammersley's unique ability to tell a story and his use of vivid description. As a reader I could envision every facial expression and movement. I was pulled into every scene and felt the attraction between Dave and Gena.
If you aren't a Larry Hammersley fan yet, you will be. His stories just get better. I highly recommend this sweet romance, "Photo Beauty."
