About Laura

Laura Marie Altom is the author over 50 books in three different genres. She’s been happily married to her college sweetheart (Go Hogs!) for 29 years and believes their boy/girl twins actively plot to drive her crazy!

Now that her kiddos are grown, Laura Marie spends her days contentedly writing and chasing after the family menagerie of pets, ranging from a mutt named Yeti, a mini-long-haired dachshund named Coco, a Yorkie named Chewie, Foxy Kitty (a Maine coon who outweighs the dogs), and Domino–a black-and-white stealth cat she rarely sees!

When night falls, Laura Marie steals a few romantic moments for herself and her own hunky cover stud!


Laura Marie’s son, Terral, is an actor in LA. He’s been on HBO’s Westworld, American Horror Story (Roanoke), Two Broke Girls, and way too many more to list! Check out his IMDB for his latest projects!


Laura Marie’s daughter, Hannah, is in corporate real estate. She lives close enough to visit everyday and teases that she’s her mother’s favorite support animal! They run a flea market booth together and love to “yard-sale” every Saturday morning!


Laura Marie’s office is a work-in-progress, so she spends most days writing at the kitchen table with her fur posse!
