Laura L. Weller's Summary

Starting out in journalism - newspapers, trade journals and magazines - was a hump to climb out of but now I specialize in fiction. And yes, I also worked for a year on NPR radio. My deepest grooves are cut in Fortune 100 companies as a sales and marketing manager. I connect well with people, a great asset in crafting characters and when I'm done with a book I wantb to get it out there, teach writing classes, talk about it, sell copies.

Specialties: Writing YA Fiction, writer-networking, marketing strategies, and social media.

Laura L. Weller's Experience

YA (Young Adult) Contemporary Fiction Writer

- Be Limitless

January 2000Present (14 years 9 months) Allentown, PA

I write young adult novels and am excited about the YA novel underway. The SCBWI organization and two writer's groups keep me from isolation insanity and the exchange of ideas is stimulating. One group meets bi-weekly at a local spot and the other exchanges a weekly pile of manuscript pages. Booya.
