Laurie Brown says she writes because she loves to, because she needs to do it in order to stay sane, and because writing gets her out of housework. By day a mild-mannered accountant, she spends her evenings and weekends writing, following her alpha heroes and spunky heroines on their madcap adventures to a happy ending. She writes historical, contemporary, and paranormal romances, each with a humorous voice and sensual tone. Her second time-travel romance "What Would Jane Austen Do?" was a Romance Writers of America RITA Finalist in the Paranormal Category.

Besides speaking at writing conferences from Florida to Washington, Laurie has taught a number of writing classes at College of DuPage. She loves to hear from readers, especially if they laughed out loud while reading her books.
