Laura Bower is a children’s book writer. She is the author of THE IMPOSTER (March 5th, 2024) as well as the forthcoming EMILY SNOOK, THE WORLD’S SMALLEST COOK (September 2024). She is also a teacher at a local preschool. The kids she teaches as well as her own three children are constant sources of inspiration for her stories.

After graduating from the University of Richmond with a dual degree in Communications and Leadership Studies, Laura worked for a strategic communications firm in New York City for over 10 years, before starting her family.

Laura is an active participant in SCBWI, 12×12, #50PreciousWords and StoryStorm, as well as a graduate of the Children’s Book Academy, Marcie Colleen’s Study Hall and Susanna Hill’s Making Picture Book Magic. She frequently attends conferences, book festivals, webinars, and is an active member of a 2024 debut marketing group, PB Soar 24 (@PB_Soar24).

Laura lives in Westchester, NY (in a suburb a half an hour outside of NYC) with my husband, three children and dog Clover. When not writing or reading, she loves planning trips to new places, live theatre/comedy shows, game nights, hot (or iced) tea, walking her dog and baking. She is represented by Mary Cummings at Great River Literary.
