I’m Laurie Hazel, I’m the mother of two adorable little girls, a wife married ten years with my first love. We are both Bible students and active members of our church and I volunteer as the librarian at our daughters’ school, which belongs to our church.
I am also a psychologist with a specialty in Psychoanalysis so life gets pretty busy at times. Every night for a couple of hours and during the occasional free hour during the day I am a passionate writer of romantic escapes. At the moment I am working on my first book, a contemporary romance novel, set in Canada and Australia. I am also writing a series of short stories about relationships, love, and motherhood that I hope to get published soon.
I enjoy participating in the writing community events in my area and meeting new and established authors of any and every genre. I am an active member of the Hamilton Mountain Writers’ Guild and a contributor at wordsilly.com.
When I’m not working, writing or running around doing errands and driving with my girls to their different activities, I have two hobbies, reading and watercolour painting. I love reading a variety of literature from classics, romances, thrillers and horror to non-fiction of many kinds. I also enjoy painting portraits with watercolours.
Welcome once again to my blog and to my thoughts as I share with you my journey as a writer and as I learn more about what it takes to become an author.
I do hope you enjoy.
