Welcome to the website of Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and USA Today bestselling author Laura Kamoie! I’ve been fascinated by early American history my whole life, and I hope in my books to introduce you to the extraordinary men and women who founded America. My novels imagine the lives of early American and revolutionary women who are so often in the shadows of more famous men, and in so doing, they explore the triumphs, dilemmas, choices, and sacrifices that shaped their lives and helped build America. I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I’ve loved writing them.

Please explore this site and check back often for new content. Thank you for visiting – I hope you make yourself at home!
