Hi and thanks for visiting!

I'm Laura Resau (rhymes with "see-saw"). I write novels set in places where I've lived or traveled - Mexico, France, Ecuador, Arizona, Colorado, and Maryland. Magic, love, and adventure tend to find their way into my stories. So do brave characters who take journeys of all kinds, inside and outside themselves. My books are shelved in the kids' and teens' sections, but are read by many not-so-young adults, too.

Writing stories makes me feel ALIVE! Other things that make me feel alive are exploring languages and cultures, wandering by streams, drinking tea with lots of milk and honey, and biking with my husband and son around our happy hometown of Fort Collins, Colorado.

I hope you enjoy delving into this labyrinth of a website. May you find yourself pleasantly lost in it for a while. Thank you for reading my books and letting me do my dream job...

Abrazos and bisous and warm wishes,

Kirkus on The Lightning Queen
