I’m Laura Creedle. I’m ADHD, dyslexic and neuro-divergent in other ways I won’t go into here because it would take too long to explain. I write YA novels and I also blog about my experience with ADHD. I live in Austin, Texas with my husband and an elderly blind Pomeranian, plus a cat who thinks he’s a dog. Like most people in Austin, I play guitar. I also own more than one pair of cowboy boots. Neither of these is a requirement, but they help. When not writing, I volunteer with a kindergarten pre-literacy program at a local school.
My next novel, POOLBOY, is a YA Contemporary romance that combines elements of Weetzie bat and Eleanor and Park.
Life is a constant party in the run down art moderne mansion 16-year-old Clementine Black shares with her musician mother. But when Clementine’s mom goes missing at a noise fest in Miami, the party ends, and the only person who seems to cares is a kid from her new school, dreamy, anxious Daniel Montana Monahan. As the two of them track down her mother, Clementine begins to realize that her perfect life was not so perfect after all. It’s probably not the best time to start a band, or to fall in love, but what time ever is?
