Raised in a small town on Vancouver Island, Laurel grew up skiing and boating by day and reading romances under the covers by flashlight at night. Ever committed to the proper placement of the Canadian “eh,” she loves to write books with snapping sexual tension and second chances. She lives outside Vancouver with her law-talking husband and two daughters. At least half her diet is made up of tea.

On a research trip to Montana, Laurel found the inspiration for the town of Sutter Creek, and the Dawson and Fitzgerald families came to life. A FATHER FOR HER CHILD, the second in the Sutter Creek miniseries, is being released by Harlequin Special Edition in print (June 18, 2018) and e-book (July 1, 2018).
