About Laura Thomas…

 

THE SHORT STORY:

Laura is married to her high school sweetheart, has three wonderful children, and an adorable English bulldog. Born and raised in England and Wales, she immigrated to Canada in her mid-twenties, and now lives in Kelowna, British Columbia, where her authoring dreams have become a reality.

Laura treasures the privilege of sharing her heart in the form of published novels, short stories, and Bible devotions. Laura’s strongest desire is to provide wholesome reading for children, challenging books for teens, and encouragement as well as entertainment for her adult readers.

 

THE NOT-SO-SHORT STORY:

Laura is married to Lyndon, her high school sweetheart, and has three amazing children- Charlotte (22), Jameson (18), and Jacob (15)… and a cheeky English bulldog named Ginger Lily.

Laura was born and raised in the south of England, then spent her teens and early twenties in Wales, before embarking on an audacious adventure; immigrating to Canada. She now lives in Kelowna, a beautiful gem in British Columbia, where her authoring dreams have become a reality.

After completing 13 years of home schooling her children (and remaining relatively sane), she is now able to focus on writing. She also loves leading worship at her church, and enjoys travelling, reading, ZUMBA fitness, ballroom dancing, shopping, snow shoeing, running, and eating copious amounts of chocolate!

Laura’s faith is everything to her. Having witnessed the dramatic conversion of her father, she made the decision to become a Christ follower at the tender age of eleven. As a child, reading was a huge passion and today she treasures the privilege of sharing her heart with young readers.

Laura first took pen to paper hoping to create “something readable” in 2006, after much encouragement from her husband. Two courses from the Institute of Children’s Literature (USA) and numerous submissions later, she is now a published author!

Tears to Dancing is an inspirational novel for teens, published by Dancing With Bear Publishing in 2012. Much of her heart and soul went into this book, and she is forever grateful to the One who gave her the words to write.

Tears of a Princess is the dramatic sequel, and was also published by Dancing With Bear Publishing in 2013.

Pearls for the Bride: Dear Daughter… is a marriage/ relationship book for brides-to-be and newlyweds, published by Dancing With Bear Publishing in May 2014.

Fairy Wings is Laura’s first self-published picture book on Kindle for ages 3-6, published Nov 2014.

Celebrating Love tells Laura’s own true love story, and is a Kindle short story published by Dancing With Bear Publishing for Valentine’s Day in 2014.

Laura enjoys writing for all ages and many genres from pre-school short stories to love-inspired suspense manuscripts. She has articles and short stories published in magazines and online in Shine Brightly, U.S.Kids, Zamoof!, Keys for Kids, Bumples, Short-story-time.com, Guardian Angel Kids Ezine, Knowonder!, SUSIEMag.com and Christian Devotions U.S.  One of her stories is published as an educational tool by Peoples Education for the school market in the USA, and she also has a short story “The Fiery Princess” in Knowonder!’s published anthology Spread Your Wings. Laura writes regular short stories for Vida Yum online children’s magazine, and has been involved with editing for their U.K. market. She has written a series of e-books for them, which have been animated as cartoons, with a plan for a DVD.

With the desire to provide wholesome reading with good, solid morals for young children, challenging books for teens, and encouragement for adults, Laura will continue to write while there is still ink in her pen.

new york is the place to be The washing hands thing does not usually bug me but the other day my son came in from playing in the sand box and was eating something and I happened to look at his hand and could see it was brown from the sand. I was a tad grossed out but I knew he was going to be okay. We did wash his hands right after I noticed.. You can judge the ornament by hearing it. For this, you need to throw the ornament from the ground. If you are able to hear a clear sound it signifies that the one that you have chosen is made of pure silver. Moving about is quick and easy and the design is intuitive while still flowing well. Going into each character there is a bit of artwork and a summary but there's also a commentary. The commentary is done by the Japanese voice actress for Honoka and it showcases a short clip, often a couple of minutes or less, of character design artwork with comments about the perception and design of them.. Resident of Sweden's Furuvik Zoo, Santino the chimpanzee took his criminal acts to a higher level when he actively engaged in warfare against the hapless humans who dared to visit his chimp island enclosure. Deciding he wasn't overly keen on the gawking families and school groups who crowded around his living space on a daily basis, Santino elected to show his displeasure by hurling rocks toward the hairless freaks. But of course that alone wouldn't be enough to get him a place on this list.. Bollywood Aishwarya Rai baby B continues to be out of sight, just like Aish baby bump was hidden. Now other B town moms are following in Rai footsteps. A recent report from Bollywood Life shows a side by side photo set of Aishwarya Rai and Shilpa Shetty. Although the ads are pushing clothes and fragrance, there's a subtle message that freckles are no longer as socially repugnant as zits or A cups.Talk about the trend to un glam gals. Did you see that slam on Barbie in Rolling Stone? Could a new generation actually think that perfect doll is well, plastic? As if!We're talking about the July issue, which featured a full page color ad for Urban Decay cosmetics with the slogan Burn Barbie, Burn'' and the comment that women be real, not dolls.''In response, Mattel warned the alternative cosmetics company from Orange County noted for nail polish colors such as Mildew not to mess with Barbie. According to Women's Wear Daily, the toy manufacturer sent a cease and desist notice, which Urban Decay is respecting, which means those one time only ads will soon be collector's items.Wondering who the most beautiful couple in the world is? One look at Donna Karan's new ads and you know it's not Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.youporn
