PAL Member


Laurie Theurer’s writing adventure began in 2012 at a writing conference in Geneva, Switzerland. She started writing flash fiction and picture books, as she loved the challenge of infusing very short stories with meaning and emotion. Since then, she’s experimented with short stories, poetry, middle grade, and is in the drafting stage for a YA novel. Her stories usually draw on childhood in California, her two years in Peace Corps Thailand, and the past 20+ years in Switzerland.  Laurie is represented by Jonathan Rosen of The Seymour Agency.
