Author BioAuthor Laura Hedgecock

LAURA HEDGECOCK is passionate about telling stories and connecting with others. She comes by that passion honestly; her grandmother, Hazel Crymes, wrote throughout her life. However, her grandmother wrote in secret; Laura believes in sharing.

When she’s not writing, Mrs. Hedgecock enjoys spending time with her husband, her young-adult sons (when they’re available), playing soccer, nature photography, and finding her roots.
