About Me

Laurence MacNaughton urban fantasy author
Author photo © Kelly Weaver Photography

I grew up in a creaky old colonial house in Connecticut that just might’ve been haunted. As a kid, I was a choirboy in a church built in 1754. I also pounded out stories on a shiny black Remington typewriter until I sold my first magazine article at age 19.

Today, I write fast-paced books with spooky monsters, sweet romance, wry humor and outrageous car chases. My work has been praised by Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, RT Book Reviews, Library Journal, and Booklist.

When I’m not writing, I bike and hike the Colorado Rockies, explore ghost towns, wrench on classic cars, and play the theremin. But the whole time, I’m thinking about my next book.
