 I'm Laurel Wenson, author, teacher, and speaker.

Your wait is over! You can now pre-order A Heart to Heal!

I run my own part-time business Lessons by Laurel, an online resource for homeschool families, and offer online classes in Middle and High School English, Art History, Music History, and World Geography.  I've been teaching in the homeschool community in some capacity for 15 years.

During my teaching years I also ran a homeschool theater troupe, which was the inspiration for my first book, Sets on a Shoestring,  published in July of 2019.

My debut YA novel A Promise to Keep released on June 29th, and A Heart to Heal (book 2 of the series) releases on December 1st..  Right now I'm working on book 3 as I participate again in National Novel Writing Month.

I'm a member of the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers' Group here in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, and a proud graduate of the "Publishing for Writers" specialized diploma program at Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, PA.
