Bio: Lauri J Owen is a civil rights lawyer who grew up in Idaho's Treasure Valley and worked for more than a decade in law enforcement. In 2003, her passion for social justice led her to law school. After completing her Juris Doctorate at U.C., Berkeley, she moved to Bethel, a village in the Alaska Bush, where she fell in love with the the people, the magic, and the majesty of her new home state. Lauri was selected in 2006 for inclusion in the "Who's Who of American Women" directory in part for her commitment to civil rights, and she currently lives in metro Alaska with her elementary-school-aged son and rescued cat companions. Lauri is currently hard at work on the third novel in the Embers series, Rising Embers, which she hopes will be out in late 2011 or early 2012.
I have a particular interest in animals. If you want to help make the world a better place, adopt a cat or dog from your local shelter today. Save a life and don't buy from breeders. And animal lovers can rejoice: Lauri donates 100% of the proceeds from her books to no-kill animal rescue.
