Welcome! If you’re looking for L. M. or Laura Malone Elliott, you’ve found the right place. I have two bylines—L. M. for historical novels and my full name for the picture books illustrated by the amazing Lynn Munsinger.

Thanks to Chris Hample for designing such an imaginative site—a perfect example of the creative collaboration set in motion by books. Readers and educators add their own thoughts and imagination to my words, making a book a wondrous living thing.

Come on in to learn more about me, my books, the research/ writing process, and the fascinating historical time periods of my novels.

Kind Words

“Elliott’s fluid style is woven together with vivid historical details, appropriate for adolescents who seek suspense-filled adventures."
