Greetings! I’m Laura Standage!

I’m an aunt to thirteen, a Spanish speaker, a collector of teacups, a fantasy writer, a hobbit impersonator, and I’m an English major.

Dramatically looking off into the distance…

Ever since I was young, I have been fascinated with stories. The real start to my life as a writer began when I wrote a fairy tale for my fourth grade class. Since then, plenty more ideas have come. Most are epic fantasy and fairy tales with a teslapunk in the mix. There is something particularly powerful about teaching lessons and portraying themes through a world of my own, such as in epic fantasy novels. There is also great merit and impact in the feelings and thoughts created by experimentation with language. That is what I want to share with the world. My exceptional shortness adds to my love of hobbits (I’m 3′ 25″) and how they can be both adventurers and quaint homebodies, titles I hope to develop.

One of my favorite books is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
