Author Bio


As a child Laina thought she would either be a truck driver (thanks to Jerry Reed in Smokey and the Bandit) or work at Taco Bell (her favorite restaurant as a child).
As she grew older she realized her talents lay in academics and business and for the last several years has been a business consultant and college professor where she uses the analytical side of her brain and not the side that makes up stories.
Through all her career choices she has continued to have a passion for writing. This stemmed from childhood whereas an only child she developed a vivid imagination spending most of her time making things up and thinking the Incredible Hulk lived in her closet.
Proud of her vast experiences in life from barrel racing to being on the dance team for a semi pro basketball team to being a mom of 2 amazing kids, she tells her family and friends that no one is safe from their escapades slipping in to her books.
Taking the plunge to write books (cozy mysteries and chick lit) that she actually let people read in 2010, she has worked her way up to being a real author, having 5 fans (maybe 6 now). Her blog, Writing is a Lifestyle, was launched to share the daily fun in the life of a Real Housewife of the Midwest along with the musing of other fabulous ladies.



~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~~

I love Presley's antics. When she is supposed to be in Vegas for her best friend's wedding, something always happens where she is investigating a problem, murder, kidnapping etc... But what she doesn't know, is things aren't always what they seem.

Laina really does have an eternal fan here. These books are amazing and they always lead you on an adventure. You will laugh, cry, smile, and hold onto your kindle tightly until you know what is going to happen. If you are thinking one thing, it is the complete opposite! Keep reading this series!!
