I’m young adult author Estelle Laure

I wrote YA books This Raging Light and But Then I Came Back and this is where I invite you into my world. If you aren’t into that, you should probably turn back now. But if you are, you should know I’m as into reading, music, pop culture, and women’s rights issues as I am into writing and I am very, extremely into writing.

Also magic.

Always magic (don’t believe the hype-it’s totally real).

 If you want to know more, join me on Instagram for my world (you’re going to see animals, kids, and lots of books), on Twitter for articles and banter, and Facebook for everything else. I also do a once a week blog about random stuff. It can be music, art, a book, a playlist, podcast, or even a person or place.

You can also sign up for my newsletter for a monthly song, wish, and dish.  

And here’s my promise to you: If you write me, I will write you back.

In the meantime, keep making your own magic, and shine!

xoxo, Estelle

But Then I Came Back by Estelle LaureWhat do you do when you wake up from a coma?

Go back to the way things were? Or start something new?

From the author of This Raging Light comes the story of Eden Jones, a 17-year-old girl who feels not only lost after her accident, but like she might have dragged something back from the near-afterlife with her. Unable to connect to family and friends, Eden becomes obsessed with the mysterious girl lying in a coma in the room next to hers at the hospital, Jasmine, who she recognizes from her time between life and death. Joe, Jasmine’s best friend, might have the answers Eden needs about why Jasmine and Eden are so tied together, and if not, he may be enough to bring Eden back to life.

Notes From the Well

Favorite Thing: Little Rock Central High School

I knew about the Little Rock Nine and had seen the pictures … Read more

Favorite Thing: Goodbye, Girls

I know lots of people hate-watched Girls. I know it drove people nuts with its narcissistic rants and sometimes grotesque kink. But I loved it. I loved it so much I couldn’t bear to watch the last several episodes and let them stack up on my DVR. My life as I knew it started to … Read more
