- Writer, present
Born in Savannah but raised on Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina, Laura Cooper is a true southern woman. She believes that iced tea should always be sweet and has an entire Pinterest Board with over a hundred different ways to cook shrimp. Via an AOL chat room she met her husband of sixteen years, Chris Cooper. Together they have two children, (both in college at the same time) and fifteen, yes count’em, fifteen dogs. Prior to writing novels, Laura ran a large pure breed rescue organization for homeless animals. She, Chris and the kids found homes for over six thousand homeless dogs until they retired three years ago. Between calls begging for money (from her children) and squeaky toys she somehow manages to embolden other southern women to explore their sexualities through reading. Claiming that fifty is the new thirty Laura encourages her readers to examine themselves, crawl out from beneath the soccer mom status and live a little.
