As a shy, only child Laura Ryan depended heavily on her imaginary friends for companionship. These friends often took the shape of characters from her favorite bedtime stories, Icarus, Antigone, Aphrodite, Hercules, and most of all Pandora. As she grew, Laura developed an interest in folk tales and ancient religions, as well as a passion for the works of Marion Zimmer Bradley, Tolkien, and Shakespeare. These influences, coupled with her acute connection to her Greek heritage on her mother’s side, as well as a rich storytelling tradition on her father’s, have prompted Laura to write epic tales that challenge long-accepted mythologies.
