About the Author

Many years later, and with loving encouragement from her family, Laura decided to start writing again. Besides being a full-time homemaker to her three kids, she loves waterskiing, hiking, and drinking Dr. Pepper. Currently, Laura Beers resides in South Carolina.
1. What is your favorite dessert?
I love pink Starburst, not red, not yellow, but pink. I never get tired of those delicious, pink, chewy treats!
2. What is your beverage of choice?
I love Dr. Pepper. I am pretty sure my mom put Dr. Pepper into my bottles.
3. What is your favorite movie and/or TV show?
My favorite movie of all time is Wonder Woman. I used to dress up as Wonder Woman as a child, which is why I am pleased that my daughter wants to be Wonder Woman for Halloween this year.
4. Where is your favorite place to go on holiday?
This summer we went to Oahu and stayed near Northshore. It was beautiful and relaxing. During our two-week vacation, my kids got tired of going to the beach and protested! They demanded a day off from the beach and wanted to stay at the hotel to play on their electronics. What a hard life my kids have!
My dream vacation is to go to England and Scotland and travel to all the historical sites.
1. Who or what inspired you to become an author?
I have always had stories in my head that I would daydream about. At some point, my fictional characters almost felt real. I wanted to share these stories with others.
2. What did you want to be when you grew up? Did becoming an author ever cross your mind?
When I was younger, I would dream about becoming a writer, and would sit at our word processer and type out stories. I also dreamed about being a lawyer, President of the United States, a princess, an astronaut, an FBI agent, and a spy.
3. Who are some of your favorite authors? Do these authors inspire your own writing?
Rebecca Connolly, Sara Eden, Jennifer Moore, Heather B. Moore, and Jenni James. There are so many fantastic writers right now! I am constantly discovering new authors and love their books.
4. When you are not writing, what other "hats" do you wear?
I am a wife, mother, school volunteer, Dr. Pepper addict, and friend.
Book Related Questions
1. What inspired the idea for Saving Shadow?
I started daydreaming about being a spy during the Regency period. After all, who hasn’t thought about being a spy before, especially a spy that can throw daggers, decipher enemy codes, and outwit an evil villain?
2. What do you want readers to take away from reading Saving Shadow?
I want the readers to enjoy the book. Even though my book touches on white slavery and PTSD, it is meant to be a light-hearted, fun read. My favorite part is the witty banter between the characters.
3. What is your current WIP? What can you tell us about this project?
I am so excited about my 2nd book of the series, A Peculiar Courtship. The tagline for this book is, “He would protect her from anything. Even herself.” The story revolves around Lord Jonathon Beckett and Lady Hannah, and a sinister plot by the dastardly French spies that are hiding in plain sight.
