M. Lauryl was born and raised in the Great Pacific Northwest of Washington State. She lives there now with her husband and three sons, four dogs, two cats, nine chickens, and two ducks. She is a labor & delivery nurse, avid reader (and writer!), and loves to go camping and play in the woods. She strives to keep the characters in her stories as realistic as she can. Every day people with every day flaws...in unusual situations! GRACE LOST was her debut novel, with the second book of the series, TAINTED GRACE, due out spring of 2013. The plan is three books in this series, but perhaps it will go beyond that! At some point she also plans to write a novel about a haunted house, as well as one about the elusive Sasquatch. Both promise to be filled with blood and gore.
