About Laura LofgreenLaura Lofgreen

Finding time to write doesn’t come easy for me, (hey, neither does a clean house and well-behaved kids) but using my imagination does.  I develop plots and twists while doing the dishes and when I have my own personal struggles, I see the word through the eyes of my fictional characters.  What has happened to me?  I have become a writer and it has changed the way I look at the world.  I have now written three novels (and counting) and published a memoir titled The Memory Catcher (Spring Creek Books).
My other interests include shopping at thrift stores and yard sales.  I blog about the amazing and sometimes strange things I find and how I turn trash to treasure.  My Dear Trash ( has almost a million hits; the most popular being before and after of my vintage furniture make-over’s.  I am also an avid reader, but with five children finding time to read takes some creativity.  That is why most days you can find me at the gym reading a great book while bouncing up and down on the elliptical machine.
I am a published author in newspapers and magazines, a member of The Society for Children’s Book Writer & Illustrators, American Night Writers Association and Arizona Outreach Coordinator for the Children’s Health Environmental Coalition. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in Communication from Arizona State University, where I worked as Environmental Issues Director. I write daily on my blog and continue to have dreams that inspire my next novel
