While spending a rainy afternoon at a friend's house more than thirty years ago, Laura Bradford fell in love with writing over a stack of blank paper, a box of crayons, and a freshly sharpened number two pencil. From that moment forward, she never wanted to do or be anything else. Today, Laura is a national bestselling mystery and award-winning romance author. Her national bestselling Amish Mystery series includes Hearse and Buggy, Assaulted Pretzel, Shunned and Dangerous, Suspendered Sentence, and A Churn for the Worse. She lives in Yorktown Heights, New York, with her husband and their blended brood.
