I will not blog on this website.  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 beginnings for fully developed novels, 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 thirty years later, I have many published stories to my name.  I live in Virginia Beach with my daughter who shares my love of international language, history, and all things artistic.
I’m not using much from my two degrees to work as a senior paralegal for a large law firm in Norfolk, VA.  Writing, however, has become my focus for a life filled with all my passions - love, writing, and chocolate.
