The best way to describe Laura Bingham would be as a mom, teacher, dancer, and author. Her first published works include a middle-grade fantasy, Älvor, released in 2009, and its sequel, Wings of Light, 2011. And yes, there’s a last installment that’s nearly finished.
As a full-time science teacher, Laura never has to leave the wonder of teenage-hood. Not only does she adore teens, have teens, and teach teens, but she loves writing about being a teen. When she’s not doing a million other things, she sneaks in a good book, and sometimes runs off with her family for a weekend getaway to Cascade.
And just so she never gets bored, she directs and teaches the Boise Cloggers, a studio she’s owned for over twenty years. She lives in Boise, Idaho, with her amazing husband and five awesome kids.
