L. M. Elliott was a senior writer with the Washingtonian magazine, covering women’s issues and the performing arts for 20 years before becoming a New York Times best-selling author of historical and biographical fiction. Her twelfth and latest, Louisa June and the Nazis in the Waves—set in Tidewater, Virginia, during the deadly U-boat attacks on our East Coast in 1942—has been called “superb,” “deeply moving,” and “an engrossing must-have” in four starred reviews in Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, ALA Booklist, and School Library Journal. Her novels explore a variety of eras (the Italian Renaissance, the American Revolutionary War, WWII, and the Cold War), and are written for a variety of ages. Louisa June is her fifth novel narrated by Elizabeth Wiley. Follow Laura on Twitter or Instagram @L_M_Elliott.
