About Laura Durham

Laura Durham has been writing for as long as she can remember and has been plotting murders since she began planning weddings. The idea behind the Annabelle Archer wedding planner mysteries and the first book in the series, BETTER OFF WED, was born from the overwhelming desire to murder a particularly unpleasant Mother-of-the-Bride (or MOB). Once Laura realized that killing her would be bad for business, she decided to do away with her on paper.


BETTER OFF WED won the Agatha Award for Best First Novel and two other books in the series, FOR BETTER OR HEARSE and TO LOVE AND TO PERISH, followed. After taking a hiatus from publishing to have two children and plan five hundred or so weddings, Laura returned to the mystery world in 2017 with a new Annabelle Archer book, DEATH ON THE AISLE. The series currently has 18 books and counting!


When she isn’t writing, Laura loves traveling with her family, stand up paddling, perfecting the perfect brownie recipe, and reading obsessively.
