Laura Burke


I retired from Nursing and became a Private Investiagor for several years. I started writing twenty years ago, but never finished the first novel until about five years ago. I have six published novels and now have started a series. The third novel in the series will be out in the next 30 days. I love telling stories and making the story exciting to hold your interest till the last page!

Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
Fans are everything to me. Without them reading my novels there would be no use to continue to write. Which I love doing. Fans are what makes writing so exciting, to please the fans and give them what they want.
Who are your favorite authors?
I really don't have a favorite author. I like almost everyone who writes mysteries. James Patterson is one of the authors I do admire, but like I said, I like all the authors out there. Being an author myself I know what they go through to get their novels out to the public.
