ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Laura Antonelli, originally from Algonac, Michigan is an author, mother and a survivor.
Raised in an isolated area Laura was the youngest of four children. Her siblings were much older and young Laura found herself responsible for her own entertainment. She developed a love of poetry, in particular Edgar Allen Poe and a diverse interest in music. Excelling in writing at an early age she also has an interest in the arts which she participated in throughout her high school years.
Laura lives with Bi-Polar Disorder which has been a personal struggle since the age of 14. Despite her problems with failed marriages, mental and physical abuse, drug addiction, and medical dilemmas requiring five major surgeries in 7 years (during which time she wrote her first book), she still managed to raise her daughter and obtain a college degree.
Life has given Laura an untold wealth of unusual experiences upon which she draws in her writing. Life has not beaten her, however. She continues to confront her burdens in life head on with hope and optimism while she pursues her continuing education and writing goals.
