Laura Hawks

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Ms. Hawks has always been interested in writing in some form or other. A few years back, she was involved with and then ran a Star Trek Interactive Writing Group which was successful for a number of years. Yes, she is a trekker and proud of it.

A few years back, she received her Master’s Degree in Ancient Civilizations, Native American History and United States History.

It was at this time she got involved in role playing on FaceBook, which gave her ample opportunities to grow and hone her writing ability.

Today she has several books out, including the Demon Trilogy, a couple of stand alone’s and a non-fiction souvenir book on the Balconies of New Orleans. She recently wrote a Suspense/Thriller which is her second non-paranormal book.

She lives in the suburbs of Chicago with her three companions, all males… cats. She travels as much as she can to various Author/Reader conventions and loves to meet established fans and make new ones, some of which she considers friends more than fans

When and Why did you start to write?

I’ve always been writing in some form or other… first as part of and then running a Star Trek writers group, then as a newspaper journalist, a role playing writers group and finally as a published author. I started writing books because of published friends in my writing group insisted I send work to a publisher. They liked it and the rest is history. I was first published for a novel in 2012.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

Sherrilyn Kenyon, J.R. Ward, Graham Masterston and Suzannah Daniels

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

How much you have to market and how much I hate editing.

What are you working on now?

The third in the Spirit Walker’s Saga (Paranormal Romantic Suspense) and the second in Shattered Fairytales (This time working on a corruption of the Little Mermaid). Also getting ready to start a new YA paranormal series.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

Mostly a pantser, but I do plot out notes.

What are your social links?


What are your buy links?

Buy links are available on my website, and on Amazon
