L.A. Parent Magazine lauded Summer of L.U.C.K.as a “good read,” and Readers’ Favorite praised it as “a tale that not only incorporates magic, carnivals, friendship, and fun but also manages to thread the plotline with pearls of wisdom about life, bullying, self-worth, and self-esteem.” Ready or Not, according to middle grade/YA author Frank Morelli, “is filled with twists, turns, magic, time travel, and a healthy dose of courage from its deeply authentic cast of characters.” Rob Kent, Middle Grade Ninja podcast host, called The Chambered Nautilus,“a fun, fast-paced read with… heart and whimsy.”

Based in Los Angeles, Stegman is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of UC Irvine with a B.A. in Drama. She loves reading, Dodgers baseball, New York City, classical music, and theater. www.LauraStegman.com
