Laury A. Egan

Author's Bio

I am the author of "The Outcast Oracle" (Humanist Press), which was awarded a Kirkus Review Best Books of 2013 citation; a collection, "Fog and Other Stories" (Humanist Press); and a psychological suspense novel, "Jenny Kidd" (Vagabondage Press, 2012). Three poetry books were published by FootHills Publishing: "Snow, Shadows, a Stranger" (2009) and "Beneath the Lion's Paw" (2011), and "The Sea & Beyond" (2013). Currently, I'm seeking representation for a literary suspense novel, "Wave in D Minor" and a psychological suspense, "A Bittersweet Tale."
