Laura Teagan

As long as she can remember, Laura Teagan has spent most of her life in a book. Whether she’s reading or writing, books have been a constant companion.

From the first time she the read an entire book in a day (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus) in first grade, to the time she read a 15-book series in six days, Laura’s always had a book nearby. With her love of words, it was only time before she started telling her own stories.

Laura dabbled in short stories in middle school, but it was in high school that she took off. During her junior year, Laura’s novel, The Assassin, was a “top pick” on HarperCollins’ website, inkpop.

As a “top pick,” The Assassin was read and reviewed by a full-time HarperCollins editor. Before inkpop closed, Laura launched three other stories, including two sequels to The Assassin, and a stand-alone novel, Snatched.

During her college years, Laura worked as a publicist for a small publishing firm. It was in her time with the firm that Laura realized she wanted to do things her own way and go the indie route.

The Assassin was published in November 2015, followed by Double Played in August 2016.

In March 2019, Laura released Airtime and Alibis, the first book in the Emily Burnet Series. Betrayals and Bylines followed in October 2019 and Cameras and Confessions in December 2019.

In addition to her novels, Laura has worked in politics and currently works in the tech industry. A life-long Texan, she currently lives in Austin, Texas.

Now more than ever, we need stories in this world.

Inspiration, escapism, a safe place to avoid the craziness of the world. Books have always been a place we can hide in, a place where we can be anything we want to be.

I believe in the power of stories. I’m here to bring those stories to you. 

My Core Values

Empowering Women

My stories feature women who are tough, smart, and capable of taking care of themselves while still loving others.

Stories that Entertain

At the heart of all my stories, I hope to entertain. Reading is a form of escapism for me, and I hope it is for you, too. 


Now that you’ve made it through the basics, here’s the fun stuff to know about me.

  • I worked on 5 congressional campaigns during the 2016 election.
  • I’m the oldest of four kids and my closest sibling in age has a rare speech disorder, making me a special needs sister.
  • I started writing in little spiral notebooks I bought at Target. I still own all those little notebooks to look back on.
  • I’m a certified storm spotter with the National Weather Service.

You’re never going to kill storytelling, because it’s built in the human plan. We come with it.
– Margaret Atwood
