about me

rosemary laurey
USA Today best-selling Author, Rosemary Laurey is an expatriate Brit, retired special ed teacher and grandmother, who now lives in Ohio and has a wonderful time writing stories of vampires and shapeshifting pumas.

Note: Many people ask how to pronounce my last name. It's not really how you'd expect. First syllable: Lau- (The a is a schwa: like the sound at the beginning and end of Alaska. The u isn't pronounced) Second syllable: -rey. (The -ey has the long 'a' sound as in they.)



My favorite books:

I decided to try to pick twelve books to recommend. Impossible! But here are some books I have read and reread, or remember years after I read them.

  • Sunshine—by Robin McKinley. I was sent this book to review, and it astounded me. An absolute MUST READ. Once of the best, if not THE best book I read in 2004.
  • Blood Games—by Chelsea Quin Yarbro (or any of her Saint Germain or Madeleine de Montarlia, or Olivia Clemens books for that matter).
  • Persuasion—by Jane Austen—I love the idea of a 'second chance'.
  • Less than Angels—by Barbara Pym (or anything else she wrote. This an author to go to when you wish Jane Austen had written more. Think of Jane Austen commenting on the mid-twentieth century).
  • Forever Amber—by Barbara Winsor
  • Clare's War—by Anita Burgh—a book I just could NOT put down.
  • Regency Buck—by Georgette Heyer
  • The Talented Mr. Ripley—by Patricia Highsmith (A truly evil hero—and you see the world from his point of view.)
  • Green Darkness—by Anya Seton
  • The Scarlet Pimpernel—by Baroness Orczy
  • The Silver Sword—by Ian Serraillier A children's book, yes, but one I've read and reread both to classes and for myself.
  • Demelza—by Winston Graham (or any of his Poldark novels.)
  • Blood Price—by Tanya Huff ( and the rest of the series)
  • Three Men in a Boat—by Jerome K Jerome (for when you need a laugh)
  • Cold Comfort Farm—by Stella Gibbons (to keep on chuckling)
  • Palace Walk—by Nagib Mafouz The first book of his Cairo trilogy, the setting is so incredibly real, you end up smelling the spices in the bazaar and the coffee brewing in the streets.
  • Dead Until Dark—by Charlaine Harris A lighthearted, fun read. Who could resist a vampire named Bill?
  • The Invisible Man—by HG Wells. I was about twelve when I read this but the final scene still haunts me.
  • Shining Through—by Susan Issacs
  • The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 3/4—by Sue Townsend
  • Daughter of Time—by Josephine Tey
