Read L.D. Burr

Debut Author L.D.Burr alludes to a lost civilization hidden in the forest.

     I am a graduate of the University of Michigan, mother of three boys, and enthusiast of myths, legends, and folklore. Fairy tales are the root of fiction writing. If Rip Van Winkle were to wake up in our time, he would still find his story prominently displayed at Barnes and Noble. As a labor and delivery nurse, I write the stories of sick people, their disease, their pain, and the promising beginnings of new life. In Disenchanted, I have incorporated my hopeful babies, miracle medicines, fatal diseases, persevering characters, and the chance for a happily ever after. Pardon me Rip Van Winkle, is this spot on the shelf taken, or might I sit beside you?
