Editorial Reviews


I will admit that when I picked Winnemucca up tonight to read it, I was tired and not really in the mood to read, which is unusual for me. However, it wasn't long before Ms. Elliott's poetic writing had drawn me in and captivated me completely. I quickly knew that I was in for the long haul, so I ran a bubble bath and poured a glass of wine and settled in for the ride. And what a ride it was! Ms. Elliott has created a main character in Ginny that makes you root for her so completely that when something bad happens (and spoiler alter: bad things do happen), you ache for her- you root for her to land on her feet, to fight harder. And Ginny is a fighter- something that I love in a YA main character. There is no whiny, push-over, mopey girl here in Ginny. No way. She's totally kick-ace. Winnemucca is more than a coming-of-age story. It's a tale of a girl from a small town who wants- NEEDS- to discover her true self, to come into her own rather than fall into a pre-cut mold of who others think she should be. This is a novel that is so poetic that it practically reads like a song. The metaphors and descriptions that Elliott uses are a treat and the storyline is both age-old and unique at the same time. I love this book. I love the writing in this book. I highly recommend it to anyone- young and old alike. Seriously- go read it. You'll be happy you did. --Courtney Cole, Author The Bloodstone Saga

Winnemucca is a dreamy, intense journey and coming of age for Ginny. As the reader follows that journey with her, we learn powerful lessons about life and love and the importance of following our feet, wherever they may lead. For Ginny, her restless feet lead her to danger and fear but also to love and answers to her past. Author Laura Elliott's writing voice is very unique. She had me at the first line. There is a lyrical, almost poetic style to her prose, and it lulls you into a dream state as you walk alongside Ginny and root for her to make it through her tribulations unscathed. I highly recommend this book for those who adore coming-of-age stories, strong heroines, and literary fiction. --Cheri Lasota, Author Artemis Rising

Winnemucca is a newborn classic. --Frederick Brooke, Author Andy Ogden Mysteries

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, 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.
