Across the Formidable Sea
"Laminen’s debut novel offers a fresh take on familiar archetypes. "
"[Laura's] problems and challenges are raw and relatable, and could be dropped into almost any time period right up to today."
I was born on a foggy day in the usually sunny seaside Ventura, California. At six, I wrote my first book, a riveting tale about a princess who ran away from home with her pet bird. My parents called it "Genius!" and "Riveting!", in addition to raving about the multimedia (stickers and colored pencil) illustrations. Since then I haven't put down my pen.
I still live in Ventura with my husband, Marshall, an engineering student whose part-time job is being 95% of my impulse control. My hobbies include: whiling away hours in the corners of coffee shops, beach combing, making people wait for me while I take pictures of flowers, singing in my car, and overusing the heart-eyes emoji.
My debut novel, Across the Formidable Sea, has captured readers with its unforgettable characters and lush historical setting. The sequel is currently in progress and will be released in 2018.
