“The story is told in poetic prose that I have not read since the writers of an older age. The tone of the story is set through the voice of the girl runaway before she has even realized her own talents, and is spoken with ‘the sound truth makes being said,’ as Ray Bradbury once coined the term. Emerging from a sea of derivative and formulaic novels, WINNEMUCCA is a fresh view of a world that is at once savage and beautiful, crushing and hopeful, and above all, brings magic back to ancient storytelling by bringing our attention back to the little things that matter, and the shifting nature of perception and reality alike.” -Rachel Coles, YA Book Reviewer and Author of 5 Young Adult Paranormal Fiction Novels
“The voice is distinct and the world she creates is both magical and mundane. As I read the book it reminded me of Neil Gaiman’s AMERICAN GODS.” -Matthew Hill, editor
“The themes in my work are always the same: freedom and forgiveness. I am fascinated how the footprints of our ancestors can follow us into the future. I enjoy illuminating these ideas in my fiction. In this novel, I explore courage and the cost of freedom. I’m hoping WINNEMUCCA will get generations of people talking to each other about the role of freedom and forgiveness in their lives.” - Laura A. H. Elliott. Her favorite quote from the book: “Fear’s as blind as love.”

Laura’s travel and personal essays have been published in The Los Angeles Times and other Southern California newspapers and magazines. She honed her storytelling skills as a multimedia designer at The Los Angeles Times and E! Entertainment Television but learns the most around dinner tables. She has two grown daughters and currently resides on the Monterey Peninsula, with her husband, Joe, and their Aussie shepherd, Oso.

  1. Thanks for helping to celebrate Winnmeucca's release! I'll never forget my road trip to Winnemucca. When my kids were little, and I was going crazy, I would say, "One day if you wake up and the car's gone, I'm on the road to Mt. Rushmore." Well, that trip never happened:) So, when my oldest daughter graduated from college and we were kicking back relaxing after the wonderful ceremony at a little weekend getaway, she said, "Mom, you know how you always wanted to go to Mt. Rushmore, but never did? Let's go!" So we did. We left LA hit Gold Country, swung up to Winnemucca, saw a girlfriend in Boise, they told us to go to the Sawtooth mountains, we went to Yellowstone, hit Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands and made a beeline back to LA through Denver, with a stop at the Meteor Crater in Arizona because my daughter had to get back to start work in San Francisco. It was epic. I even made a book about it on Shutterfly.com.

    I'm enjoying all the road trip stories and look forward to reading a few here.
