Welcome… sit back and stay for awhile.

My name is Laura Kemp and I’m an Educator who has always loved to write.  I have a degree in creative writing from Western Michigan University where I studied under Stuart Dybek, and yes… he is as cool as he seems. Even more so.

Since graduation I’ve gotten married and now have four kids, six cats, one dog, three hamsters, four horses and innumerable chickens.  I live on a small farm in southern Michigan but dream of the day when my husband and I can buy land up north and vanish into the woods.


When I’m not writing I love to hike with my Goldendoodle, swim, read, perform with my Celtic Band Si Bhaeg Si Mohr and act in musical theatre.  I love to connect with my readers so drop me a line and let me know what you’re thinking!


I was a little apprehensive to read this because it was a very different type of book than I’m used to. So glad I did!

The characters were well developed and the story was very intriguing! Looking foward to the sequel!!!


“Evening in the Yellow Wood” kept me on the edge of my chair from start to finish. I could not put it down! The book took unexpected twists, made me laugh an was heartwarming all at the same time. The descriptions of Michigan are priceless. Beautifully written!
