About Laura S. Wharton

Referred to the “American P.D. James,” North Carolina author Laura S. Wharton writes adventure and thriller/mystery novels for adults, young adults, and mysteries for children. Her love of history, gardening, and mystery often collide in her tales of adventurous people who rise above challenges in stories that twist and turn along the way toward satisfying—though not expected—endings. A technical writer by trade, Wharton has held every conceivable position in the communications and journalism fields. Wharton lives in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains with her husband, teenaged son, three cats and one extremely tolerant dog. She is a recovering sailor who could backslide at any moment.
