Laura L. Zimmerman


When I'm not writing, you can find me homeschooling my three daughters, at the gym taking yoga / kickboxing / Body Pump, snuggled with my husband on the couch playing mindless games on my tablet or singing on the Worship Team at my church.

I'm an avid coffee drinker, gave up eating meat seven years ago and am a sucker for anything zombie related. I've been married to my Mr. Darcy for 14 years and feel it's my life goal to pass along my obsession with the Star Wars Saga along to my offspring. (I even have advance tickets to Star Wars episode 7. OK, I'm totally kidding about that, but would walk on hot coals at the chance to see an early screening! :) Ya hear that, J.J. Abrams?)

I love to read - especially Young Adult - and tend to write Sci-Fi/Fantasy, about anything from zombies (shocker, I know,) Time Travel, teens with superpowers, space opera, aliens - I've even written straight romance. Gotta love a good love story with a whole lotta drama thrown in ;) (Hello Downton Abbey!)

Drop me a line to let me know your thoughts, leave a review on my work (please!) and tell your friends about me! I'd love to infect one more person on this planet with the love of getting lost in a good book! :)

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I spend a lot of time allowing the story to play out in my head like a movie! I've found that when I sit and just create the picture in my mind, the words flow so much more easily! Although, sometimes as I'm writing, my fingers get away from me and I find the story changing as I type. Often times what I've written is better than what I'd 'planned' and I stay with it. Some of my greatest story lines have come from spontaneous ideas!
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I've always loved to read and couldn't possibly remember the first novel I read ;) But I do have a very vivid image in my mind from tenth grade, when I read "To Kill a Mockingbird" (which is also one of my favorite novels of all time!). I became so upset about the death of a certain character, I stood on my bed and threw the book across the room, tears running down my face. Yes, I was very emotional and I think that was the first time I realized just how much a book could reach the depths of my soul.
