I’m retired from the nine-to-five life and live with my husband, two dogs and two cats inside Daniel Boone National Forest in Kentucky. I have loved fiction since before I could read and, according to my mother, made up stories based on the pictures in the books. Now that I no longer have the excuse of not enough time, I’m fulfilling my lifelong dream of writing novels. Over the years, I’ve paid the bills by being a dancer, a bartender, a police officer, a registered nurse and a technical writer. Now I’m drawing on that life experience and my two English degrees to create stories that I enjoy writing and hope readers enjoy reading.
In addition to writing mysteries as Laurel Heidtman, I also write cozy mysteries and romance (both contemporary and romantic suspense) as Lolli Powell.
