Welcome to Three Times A Charm. I love meeting new authors, illustrators, bloggers, agents, editors or promoters from the children’s publishing industry and sharing their careers with my readers.
Today’s guest is author, Laura Hesse. Welcome to Strands of Thought, Laura. Tell us a little about you, please.
After that, I worked in real estate as an unlicensed real estate assistant and a fully licensed Realtor for twenty years, but it didn’t impassion me the way that writing did.
I opened my publishing company, Running L Productions, in 2003. It was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream, one that has been with me since I was 16. I wrote my first independently published novel, One Frosty Christmas, while recovering from major surgery in 2001 and have never looked back.
Tell us more about your books, Laura.
I expanded my portfolio of novels with the teen romance/family drama, Two Independents, the west coast paranormal thriller, The Thin Line of Reason and the black comedy/murder mystery, Gumboots, Gumshoes & Murder in the last few years.
