                -LAUREL HOUCK


Laurel has been writing since the age of six, when Crawls the Caterpillar inched across her lined notebook paper propelled by a fat yellow pencil. She has published magazine pieces with Westsylvania, Skipping Stones, Nuances, and The Loyalhanna Review. Her newspaper articles appeared in The Pittsburgh Post Gazette and The Niagara Advance. Blogs are posted on AlltheWayYA and on this website. Her portfolio includes multiple children’s stories from picture books, to Middle Grade, to Young Adult.  She has two Young Adult novels, both paranormal romances, being published by Inkspell Publishing. 

In addition to writing, her passion is for travel to exotic locations around the globe. The people she meets, the places she visits, and the quirky way she looks at life all inspire her work. She loves complex characters and intricate plots that mesh into multifaceted books, melding romance, mystery, adventure, and history. 


Laurel was a chosen participant at Better Books, a craft-based workshop near San Francisco. She is active in the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and has been a presenter at their Fall SCBWI Conference In Pittsburgh. 

When she’s not deep into a writing project, Laurel is a medical missions’ nurse. She lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with her husband and their fur baby, Mabel. All of that, plus she’s the world’s biggest fan of chocolate milkshakes and hugs.
