Welcome, I’m Laura Zabala, and I’m working on my first novel. I love the Fantasy and Science Fiction genres; some of my favorite authors are Orson Scott Card, Anne McCaffrey, Isaac Asimov, Clive Barker, Jean Auel and John Milton (Paradise Lost is amazing). 

I studied abroad in Changchun, China and taught English in Chengdu, China. I’ve also traveled to England, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico. As someone well-traveled and educated in East Asian Culture, I have a unique perspective that comes out in my work and enjoy writing a diverse set of characters. I like exploring identity and sexuality in my work as well.

If you’re interested in following a fledgling Fantasy/Sci-fi author stick around for updates on my writing journey and books in progress.
