Laurel Wanrow

Before kids, Laurel Wanrow studied and worked as a naturalist—someone who leads wildflower walks and answers calls about the snake hanging out in your garage. During a stint of homeschooling, she combined her love of nature, magical characters and fanciful settings into lighthearted fantasy romance for YA, NA and adults. Her novels include a steampunk series with shapeshifters, a present-day island of green living wizards, and science fiction romance.

When not writing, Laurel tinkers with steampunk costuming, camps, hunts fossils and argues with her husband and two new adult kids over whose turn it is to clean so they fit into suburban life in Virginia.
