Laura Thomas Author
“A published Christian author with a heart for inspiring and encouraging readers of all ages.”
Welcome here! I’m Laura— a multi-genre author, passionate about faith and family and writing and English bulldogs and chocolate. I hope you’ll enjoy visiting my Blog and Bible Devo—I try my very best to share my thoughts on “whatever is lovely” … and whatever else is going on in life!
These are my babies, I mean books… published by Dancing With Bear Publishing. Christian teen fiction, marriage non-fiction, and middle grade fiction. Details are on my Books page.
My latest release is a middle grade novel (ages 8-11) The Candle Maker! Check out the TRAILER. You can order your copy through Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon.UK, or my publisher at Dancing With Bear Publishing (via Createspace).
“Every village has a mysterious character— someone to tell tales about, someone to fear. Meet The Candle Maker. One Christmas Eve in Victorian England, ten-year-old Benjamin Walker is forced to face the fabled old candle maker and see for himself if the ghastly rumors are true. Challenged by neighborhood bullies, lessons and lies, and an English bulldog along the way, Benjamin confronts his fears on a quest to discover the truth. But will this ragamuffin lad find the courage he needs in time to save a life?”
Plus here’s a little something-something for all the sweet fairy princesses ages 3-6ish out there…
