Laurie Benson is an award-winning, internationally published author who writes flirty and frisky historical romances for imprints of Harper Collins. 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. Now, she enjoys taking readers with her on romantic adventures.
When she isn't at her laptop avoiding laundry, Laurie can be found browsing antique shops, going on ridiculously long hikes, or sitting at the shoreline with her feet in the sand. She lives just outside of New York City with her husband and two sons in a house filled with testosterone--even her bunny is a boy.
Laurie is represented by Courtney Miller-Callihan of Handspun Literary Agency.
