Laurie Alice Eakes

Author Bio:

Official Bio

“Eakes has a charming way of making her novels come to life without being over the top,” writes Romantic times of bestselling, award-winning author, Laurie Alice Eakes, who used to lie in bed as a child telling herself stories so she didn’t wake anyone else up. Sometimes she shared her stories with others; thus, when she decided to be a writer, she surprised no one. Family Guardian, her first book, won the National Readers Choice Award for Best Regency in 2007. Since then, she has sold fifteen more novels and three novellas. Seven of her books have been picked up for large print publication, and Lady in the Mist, her first book with Revell, was chosen for hardcover publication with Crossings Bookclub. She also teaches on-line writing courses and enjoys a speaking ministry that takes her from the Gulf Coast to the East Coast. Laurie Alice lives in Texas with her husband, two dogs and two cats, and is learning how to make tamales.
