Loved by kids and adults alike, Laura’s novels have garnered many starred reviews and honors, including the International Reading Association’s YA Fiction Award, the Américas Award, five Colorado Book Awards, spots on “best-of” book lists from Oprah, School Library Journal, the American Library Association, Bank Street, and more. Resau’s writing has been called “vibrant, large-hearted” (Publishers’ Weekly on Red Glass) and “powerful, magical” (Booklist on What the Moon Saw).
You might find Laura writing in a vintage trailer in her backyard in Fort Collins or in her tiny cabin in the Rocky Mountains or on her travels in Latin America and Europe. When she’s not writing, she’s often wandering in the forest with her husband, cuddling with her senior rescue beagle, or head-banging (very carefully) at her teenage son’s rock shows.
