Laura Griffin is a USA Today bestselling American author of romantic suspense. She has won Romance Writers of America RITA Award for Best Romantic Suspense twice, as the Daphne du Maurier Award.



Griffin started her career as a journalist and preferred hard-news stories. She attributes her experience to her desire to write suspense fiction, since she's able to make justice prevail and give the characters happy endings. "As a reporter, you cover a lot of stories that go unresolved or do not end happily."

She grew up reading Nancy Drew books, and as she grew older, Stephen King and Patricia Cornwell. "I love King and Cornwell because their books go above and beyond scary. To me it's the characters that make them so compelling — I care about the people, so I can't stop turning the pages to see what happens to them."

In 2013, Griffin teamed up with bestselling author Allison Brennan to co-write a female detective series. Since they were both with different publishers, they decided to self-publish this series.

She currently resides in Austin, Texas.
