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 having grown up near both revolutionary and Civil War battlefields, I was always interested in the impact of war on ordinary people. In my books, I hope to introduce you to the extraordinary men and women who founded America, and to the everyday heroes and heroines who risked everything in times of war. My novels depict the great untold stories of the early Americans, Founding Mothers, and other extraordinary wartime women who are so often in the shadows of more famous men or left out of the picture of famous events. In so doing, my books explore the triumphs, conflicts, choices, and sacrifices that shaped their lives, helped build America, and created our world today. I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I’ve loved writing them.
