Laura’s eclectic career includes almost every storytelling medium, from theater, television, and film to web series, fiction, and video games. As a pitch and development consultant, Laura has worked behind the scenes on dozens of projects for television and film.
She began her writing career as a founding member of a traveling theater company and met her husband when they were cast as the lovers in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. She is the author of the children’s picture books, Nana Speaks Nanese and Papillon, and the upcoming Easter Noodles.
Nana Speaks Nanese tackles the confusing changes brought on by dementia in a reassuring and straightforward way. It's the book she wishes she'd had when her mother came to live with them, and she hopes it will help families talk to their young children about a loved one's memory loss.
In the realm of mystery fiction, Laura’s short stories have appeared in multiple anthologies. Her forthcoming novel, The End of All Things, is set in Victorian London, where, four years before Jack the Ripper, someone is stalking London's debutantes. Her podcast, Destination Mystery, features interviews with mystery writers of every subgenre.
A graduate of Yale University, Laura has won awards for journalism, television writing, and fiction. Feel free to reach out to her at Laura@LauraBrennanWrites.com
