Early life

Laura Abbot was born in Kansas City, Missouri, the eldest of three children. Abbot, a tomboy, spent a great deal of time with her grandmothers, who encouraged her love of reading and writing.


Abbot found college liberating and worked hard to graduate in only three years. She became a teacher, and, for over twenty-five years taught secondary English. After Abbot retired from teaching, she began to write. She sold her first romance novel to Harlequin Enterprises in 1994. Harlequin has since published well over a dozen of her novels, mainly in the SuperRomance and Love Inspired Historical categories.[1] Her novel, My Name is Nell was nominated for a Romantic Times Magazine award for Best Harlequin SuperRomance in 2003.[2] and "You're My Baby" was the winner of the Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence in Long Contemporary.
