The Quest










grace was so

very easy,


l i g h t n i n g – q u i c k.


In the silver flash

of a dragonfly’s wings

I had lost it all.


It’s funny really,

some things must

be lost so

they can be

sought and

found once more.


And you know

sometimes I think

the days I spent

some of the

happiest I’ve

ever truly

About the Author

Laura is thirty-something and was born and raised in a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ village in rural England, UK. She emigrated to the USA a little over two years ago, married the love of her life in her dream Las Vegas wedding, and now resides in Los Angeles, California with her husband, in a little shack by the beach.

Laura believes that animals have the best souls, and dreams of a day where extinction is extinct. She hates suffering of any kind and is a gentle soul. She is the oldest child she knows and still believes in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. She is yet to stroke a unicorn, talk with a mermaid, and hunt for vampires, but these things are on her bucket list. Laura has faith in the power of prayer, is convinced that tiny miracles happen countless times a day and believes in magic. She finds witchcraft intriguing and would like to bottle sunshine to cure gloomy days. She is a compulsive bookworm and will not leave the house without her kindle.
