Laurie Benson

Laurie Benson is an award-winning historical romance author and a 2015 Golden Heart® finalist. She began her writing career as an advertising copywriter, where she learned more than you could ever want to know about hot dogs and credit score reports. Her interest in history began when she was in elementary school, and that interest was fueled by many visits to many museums.

When she isn’t at her laptop avoiding laundry, Laurie can be found browsing antique shops, going on ridiculously long hikes, or waiting in the school pickup line. She lives with her husband and two sons in a house filled with testosterone—even her bunny is a boy.
