Best known for her ghostly thriller Her Keepers, Laura McCaskill has taken her love for writing and harnessed it to help others. In 2012, Laura published her first work Her Keepers, which won outstanding reviews. In 2016, she published her second work Fallow, a romance thriller which received equally stunning reviews.
In 2017, she became a foster parent for a local rescue in Asheville, NC. After working with-and-fostering several sick and injured small animals, Laura found a way to mix her love of writing and her love for animals. In 2018, her first article entitled Belk’s Silent Cry, was published in The House Rabbit Society’s magazine, The House Rabbit Journal. The article focused on the struggles of one of her foster rabbits, who had been diagnosed with a severe abscess in his lower jaw. Belk’s story was also published in, Discarded Rabbits by Lucile Moore and Debby Widolf.
Laura began writing for the SC United Methodist Advocate Newspaper in July 2018. Her articles consisted of ministry’s which helped people locally and some that stretched to places as far as the Navajo Reservation in Baca, New Mexico. One of her articles was featured in a 40-day devotional, Feed My Sheep, by Jessica Brodie.
From My Pen, was published in 2019. A blog on the hilariously true and random events that Laura has encountered over the years. The comical blog has been a source of escape for those who come back each week to read about a new encounter.
In 2019 Laura started, All Writers, a Facebook group that helps writers connect to not only each other but publishers, illustrators, photographers, and editors; to name a few. The group is intended to help writers learn and grow in their writing endeavors.
