Laurel came of age in a small town in north Texas and ventured fewer than 30 miles, though worlds away, to attend a small Presbyterian liberal arts college, from whence she obtained a bachelor's degree in biology. Her first literary accomplishment was a letter, at the age of 5, to request that her parents allow her and her sister to open early just one volume of the encyclopedias that were awaiting Christmas morning. She remains passionate about words. Owner of On the Record Reporting & Transcription, she has worked in the industry since 1984.
