In her other life, Laura Navarre is a diplomat who’s lived in Russia and works on weapons of mass destruction issues. In the line of duty, she’s been trapped in an elevator in a nuclear power plant and has stalked the corridors of facilities churning out nerve agent and other apocalyptic weapons. In this capacity, she meets many of the world’s most dangerous men.
Inspired by the perilous realities of her real life, Laura and her sinister twin Nikki Navarre write dark historical romance, sci fi romance, and sexy spy romance set in glamorous international locales laced with political intrigue. A Harlequin author and Golden Heart finalist, Laura has won the Emily Award for Excellence, the First Coast Romance Writers Beacon Award, the Georgia Romance Writers Maggie Award, the Duel on the Delta, Hearts through History’s Romance through the Ages Contest, the Pacific Northwest Writers Association award for romance, and is a two-time winner of the Golden Pen. She holds an M.F.A. in Writing Popular Fiction from the Stonecoast M.F.A. Program at the University of Southern Maine and is currently pursuing a PhD in Biodefense at George Mason University, among many other alarming credentials.
Laura’s current work in progress is a sexy polyamorous space opera/sci fi romance set in deep space ten years after a novel biological weapon nearly wipes out one of the galaxy’s leading races. Based in the Washington, D.C. area with her husband—teacher and memoirist Steven L. Denlinger—and two magnificent Siberian cats, she divides her time between her writing career, her academic pursuits, prolific foreign travel and other adventures for government clients.
