Laura Thompson has been writing short stories since the young age of seven and has been an avid reader for longer than that. “Though I am in my thirties I am lucky to still have the active imagination that I had as a child, only now I express it in my writing.”
Her first full length novel was written and completed at the age of 16 while taking a creative writing class. Laura first started writing the Elven Quest Series in 2007, “I had not written for pleasure in a long time and one day the characters from The Burden of Destiny entered my mind and wouldn’t leave. I had no choice but to sit down and write their story. Two years and over 800 pages later both stories are finished and I’m so excited to share them with the world.”
Laura holds her Masters in Higher Education Counseling, has a BA in Sociology and co-wrote the published ethical theory model entitled Key Factors in Making Ethical Decisions Model. Laura currently resides in Carver Massachusetts with her husband Daniel, wonderful son William and cat Luna.
Full of adventure, The Burden of Destiny follows a young hero’s quest to find her place and save her people. This word young adult fantasy novel will inspire the younger generation by addressing the meaning of trust, duty, loss, love, and the importance of preserving the world in which we all belong.
