Laurel Lindström, Author

Original Fiction for Original Readers [Ed – Is that pretentious enough?]

Stepping towards something else

Laurel is a successful technical writer with a worldwide reputation. Writing has shaped her career over the last 30 years, and Laurel’s view remains ever forwards, ever broader and ever wider. Laurel Lindström’s taking steps in a different direction, telling different stories, while holding very tight to Laurel Brunner’s clammy ink stained hand.


Laurel’s first novel was published by Unbound in April 2021. You can buy from most well stocked book distributors or from Barnett’s of Wadhurst: https://www.barnettsbooks.com.


This site showcases Laurel’s fiction, shares story ideas and samples, and blogs.
Thanks to Paul for building it for her and for so much more.
