Bio: A Systems Manager by day, and a novelist by night, Laurie Larsen has learned how to keep all the balls in her life juggling. Most days you?ll see her ducking so she doesn?t get smashed in the head as they all come crashing down!
In the year 2000 Laurie fulfilled a goal she?d held since she was seven years old ? to become a ?real? author.

Whispers was honored by making it to the final round of the national Golden Quill Contest in 2001.
