Editorial Reviews

About the Author

I love writing about enchanted road trips, shadow worlds, and alien romance while eating lots of popcorn. I live in a tree house on the central California coast. After twenty-plus years as a freelance graphic designer/animator with clients including E! Entertainment Television and The Los Angeles Times, I crossed over into the world of publishing non-fiction and followed my heart to the world of fiction. You can find me on my blog Laurasmagicday.wordpress.com, on Facebook and @Laurawriting and on Goodreads too!


I'm the author of the Shadow Series & the Starjump Series. 13 on Halloween (Shadow Series #1) is about a girl who gets a birthday gift that's literally out of this world. I love this book because it takes a look at one girl's quest for popularity, no matter what the cost.  Shadow Slayer (Shadow Series #2), is my new release and is now available as an audiobook too.  I'm really excited about this book because Roxie is one year older and finds the agony of fitting in at high school nothing compared to saving the world from the shadow onslaught. Transfer Student (Starjump Series #1) is an intergalactic tale of beauty and the geek. This book is near and dear to me because it explores the greatest mystery in the galaxy--what do boys think about girls? And, vice-versa. Ashley & Rhoe solve this mystery by swapping lives. I'm the author of  a couple stand alone novels too. Winnemucca, a small-town fairy tale is inspired by my life-long love of a little-known town and my equal love of enchanted teenage road trips. I love this book because it's about Ginny awakening to her own intuition. The Seven Caves & Other Spine-Tingling Short Stories, is a compilation of my most popular ghost stories. Recently, a lost excerpt from Shadow Slayer has been featured in a paranormal romance anthology called Midnight Surrender.

5 stars! I loved this book. I am in my 20's and could relate to the main character when I was her age. This is one book you will not want to put down. Trust me you will want to read the next book in the series too!!

This was a wonderfully engaging book. I enjoyed main character, Roxie. She was very identifiable. I mean, who hasn't felt like an outsider at some time in their life? Laura Elliott, takes a creative approach in her novel with "Roxie Speak," Roxie's unique lingo. Roxie is an animal lover and relates qualities of certain animals to label things in her life. Popular kids are flamboyant peacocks, while she is a dodo whose life ambition is to become a peacock. I won't ruin the story for you by telling you if she achieves her goal, but do recommend reading this book. I just noticed the audiobook too. Very cool. It should really bring the characters to life!

Loved this book! Great for the 11-14 set, very true and almost uncomfortable in places because of that truth. I really felt for Roxie, the lead character. She has a very strong voice and a problem I have no problem connecting with--she wants to be popular. In fact, she'll do anything at all to be one of the 'peacocks', including risking everything she is in a strange place called Planet Popular.

The writing is strong, story engaging and the characters very lovable--even when you think maybe you shouldn't. The plot took me somewhere I wasn't expecting and I dove into that. I would have loved some more book at the very end--to have explored the Pandora's box writer Elliot opened up, but that's just me, I think--I hope she writes a sequel!

I just finished a fun YA read by Laura A. H. Elliott called "13 On Halloween". It is the first novel in Laura's new Teen Halloween Series. Judging by the first book, it will be a series to follow.

The story revolves around Roxie who has entered middle school and is hoping to catapult herself into the popular crowd at school with a party for her thirteenth birthday, which falls on Halloween. A party her parents don't know she is having and wouldn't permit if they knew. She invites all of the popular kids that she admires and is thrilled when they all show up.

They give Roxie a unique gift which is literally out of this world. Laura has crafted an alternate reality which is both believable and spooky at the same time. Ultimately, the gift will teach her that you should be careful what you wish for and that 'popularity' is not all it's cracked up to be.

Roxie is a great character with a language all her own and with problems most of us can relate to. Her experiences teach her lessons that we all need to remember.

With a colorful vocabulary that includes peacocks, tarantulas, hamsters, and owls, Roxie is one of the most unique characters I've ever read in a book. Roxie wants to have a party for her thirteenth birthday. She feels like it is time she moves on up into the world of the Peacocks also known as the popular crowd. With her best friend's help she manages to pull off the birthday party she has always wanted but her parents never let her have. What she hadn't been banking on was that it was going to change her world.... literally.
Elliott takes the reader into an absolutely unique and captivating world where nothing is as it seems and reminds us that reality isn't so bad after all. It's rare I come across a book that can entertain me and my ten year old daughter. Fantastic read.

As an adult reviewer I can remember so many of the feelings the main character talks about. This would be an excellent book to read with a tween and discuss.
