A Reading Salon with Laura Kamoie (Laura Kaye)


On October 15, enjoy an evening with three authors at String Theory for A Reading Salon with Laura Kamoie. Yarn and books go hand in hand and there's something for everyone.

A Wall Street Journal, New York Times and USA Today Bestseller, Laura Kamoie has always been fascinated by the people, stories, and physical presence of the past, which led her to a lifetime of historical and archaeological study and training. She holds a doctoral degree in early American history from The College of William and Mary, published two non-fiction books on early America, and most recently held the position of Associate Professor of History at the U.S. Naval Academy before transitioning to a full-time career writing genre fiction as the New York Times bestselling author, Laura Kaye. Writing historical fiction allows her an exciting opportunity to combine her love of history with her passion for storytelling. Laura lives among the colonial charm of Annapolis, Maryland with her husband, two daughters, and monster German shepherd, Schuyler.

Heather Heyford writes contemporary romance novels set in the wine country, where she visits frequently to sample pinot noir—er, research her works in progress. Heather sold her first romance series in 2014 to Kensington Publishing’s then-new digital imprint, Lyrical Press. After gaining a following in digital, her first mass market paperback series launched early 2018 with The Sweet Spot, a contemporary love story set in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

When she was a child, Megan Lavey-Heaton commandeered scrap paper and markers to create family “newspapers.” She learned to read at age 3 by reading out loud from the T.V. Guide. When a relative wasn’t convinced, she was handed pages from the New York Times to read. Her family is still trying to figure out where she gets her writing ability from. Megan is a 2002 graduate of the University of Alabama, where she was a member of the Million Dollar Band and served on staff at the Crimson White. Upon graduation, she embarked on a newspaper career that took her from Alabama to the border of Tennessee and Virginia, up to Maine, across the country to Arizona and back east to Pennsylvania. To date, Megan has received a number of journalism honors including six Awards of Excellence from the Society of News Design.

Megan is a designer for The Patriot-News and freelance blogger who currently lives in (the real) Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, with her three cats and many books – and has yet to find any malicious clanks lurking in the apartment. She is married to a Scouser who is currently finishing his Ph.D. at Liverpool John Moores University. She is constantly plagued by plotbunnies.
