Mina’s family told her to write her own bio, something about how she doesn’t like dark gritty superhero movies (she doesn’t) or tales of the dystopian future, but really, there isn’t very much more to say. She’s a profoundly boring young adult, and a good Scottish girl who wants to do a job that won’t suck out her soul, help her parents to retire, and one day buy her mother a smart car like she always wanted.
With an overactive imagination and a love for writing, Laura Stapleton decided to type out her daydreams and what if’s. She currently lives in Kansas City with her husband, daughter, dog, and a few cats. When not at the computer, you’ll find her in the park for a jog or at the yarn store’s clearance section.
My unofficial? I’ve been playing around with writing fiction for over twenty years and have the rejection letters to prove it. Self-publishing has allowed me the freedom to tell my stories my way. Not only that, it gives my inner control freak free rein from start to finish.
My number one goal in writing? To give readers an escape into another world, whether that’s in another universe, time, or just down the street.
I live with my husband, three children and three dogs in Florida. It’s fun and crazy. I was born in Nebraska and grew up in the Philippines, Virginia, Alabama, Maine and Florida as an Air Force Brat. Proud patriot. I spend my time writing, taking care of my dogs and watching my children play tennis and soccer. I graduated from the University of South Florida too many years ago.
I began the journey that is now First Born over four years ago. My office was my car as I drove my homeschooled daughter around to her many activities. Also, I get my best ideas while driving long distances. Voice dictation is a must for me. Several rewrites later, twice a month critique group, two conferences and many rejections later I decided to go for it. The people reading my work loved it, but I couldn’t get an agent, so I went the Indie route and loving it.
