Getting to Know Me

Hi, my name is Laura Chipman.  I live in the wet and busy Seattle area in Washington where I currently nanny my young nephew and attend Graduate school to optain my Master's in Library Science.  DragonSpeaker is my first completed book, but I hope to publish many more in the years to come.
I attended college at Southern Oregon State College in Ashland, OR.  Now it is known as Southern Oregon University.  I loved English and writing even then, but hadn't really thought that I would ever write a book.  My major was English, the writing option, and I minored in Computer Information Sciences.
Also, I am a graduate of The Institute of Children’s Literature, having completed two of their offered courses - Writing for Children and Teenagers and Beyond the Basics: Creating and Selling Short Stories and Articles.
My short story, Adjusting, won First Place in my high school’s publication Inside/Out, and my poetry has been published in the Southern Oregon University publications West Wind Review and Moving Beyond Walls.
I also dabble in original short stories and Inuyasha fanfiction.  Links are provided on the Favorite Links page.  In the fandom I am known as The Literary Dragon.


Check it out!

Jamie Mathews is a ten-year-old who has both feet planted firmly on the ground.  She doesn't believe in magic.  So what happens when she finds out that she is the last hope to save dragonkind from extinction?  It's going to take luck, friends, and a little bit of magic for Jamie to accept her destiny.
