Laurie Elizabeth Flynn writes contemporary fiction for young adults. Her debut, Firsts, is out now with Thomas Dunne Books/St Martin’s Press and was nominated as a YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults pick. She is also the author of a series of short stories, The Boys Tell All, which is a featured series on Wattpad and has surpassed 350,000 reads. Her other short fiction has been named a finalist for the John Kenneth Gailbraith Literary Award.
Laurie went to school for Journalism, where the most important thing she learned was that she would rather write made-up stories than report the news. She also worked as a model, a job that took her overseas to Tokyo, Athens, and Paris.
Laurie now lives in London, Ontario with her husband Steve, and the world’s most spoiled Chihuahua, Abby. She loves lipstick, thrift stores, and champagne. Laurie is represented by Kathleen Rushall of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency.
