Laura Lancaster took an Advanced Biology class on her way to becoming a Forest Service Ranger, and like a virus, it never left her system. She is now writing a novel expanding upon what she learned about genetics and physiology.
Laura grew up in Salt Lake City. She has lived in Ely, Nevada, Logan, Utah, and Juneau, Alaska, where the novel is set. She currently lives in Fairbanks where she lives in a cabin with no running water.
