I recently had a booksigning at Birdland Music in Virginia Beach. If I didn't see you there, try and catch me at the Women's Show November 1, 2014 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center and I will have all my 2014 releases available for sale and signing at that event. If you can't make that one, come to the Virginia Beach Central Library on November 22, 2014. I'll be there signing books from 10:00 until 4:00!

I write romance for you. As a previous president of Chesapeake Romance Writers and a member of Romance Writers of America, I take writing seriously. My readers come first in my writing career, and I always like to hear from you. You may email me at:
If you're interested in making writing a career, and you live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, think about coming to a meeting of the Chesapeake Romance Writers. Visit the Chesapeake Romance Writers website for our meeting times, location, and a listing of free workshops.

I will not blog on this website. So what I will do is give you Fun Shorts. See the Stories For You page for fun, short girl-meets-boy stories. I imagine many of them would make great beginnings for fully developed books, and some may go that route. Here on my Laura Kitchell website, however, they will remain short stories just for you to enjoy at no cost.
I began writing creatively in my teens and became fond of the romance genre after receiving a romance novel as a gift for Christmas. I wrote my first full-length novel following a devastating car accident that landed me on my back for the last semester at university. It was a terrible book, but I finished it.
Now, nearly twenty years later, I’m a wife, a mother, and have many published stories under my belt. With each story I’ve written, I honed my skill and refined my storytelling. I live in Virginia Beach with my little family and a loveable black lab that curls at my feet every time I sit at the computer.
I’m not using much from my two college degrees to work as a senior paralegal for a large law firm in Norfolk, VA. Writing, however, has become my dream for a future filled with all my passions – my family, my writing, and chocolate.
