Biography

LAUREL DECHER

The joys we discover early can turn into life-long fascinations. I write to challenge readers ages 9 to 12 to open all the doors in their lives. Until we reach retirement age, most of us will never again have a window of time, energy, and brain power like this.

My books are about enjoying reading superpowers and imagining delightfully silly places, while discovering life's possibilities.
