MEET THE AUTHOR
Young Adult Romance Author Laurie Oknowsky
Meet Laurie Oknowsky
Laurie began writing at a young age - mostly recording her life in a journal. Then a couple years later she would write poetry and quotes. Not truly realizing where that would take her, at first she didn’t share her writing until her senior year in high school. She was surprised how well her poetry was received.
Writing was always a secret passion - never thinking she’d be taken seriously, she kept it to herself until college. After failed majors she settled on English, a cover up to what she really wanted to do - write professionally.
As she was a community writer on both Wattpad and Inkitt, she didn’t give much thought of getting published traditionally until she was starting to see she was trending and began to see themselves in her fictional characters.
The publishing process has been relatively painless with the constant support from the writer’s community on Instagram and continues on Wattpad and Inkitt. Not to mention love and support from her family.
She wishes to continue her writing full time and continues to publish her young adult romance books professionally.
