BIO

Laura Popp’s passion for fantasy compelled her at a young age to write her own tales, and she has kept at it for over ten years. Her novels, short stories, essays and plays have won numerous local and international awards in the fields of children’s literature and speculative fiction (fantasy and sci-fi).

In her “normal” life, she has been a model, film maker, teacher, world traveler, and missionary to Japan; India; Malawi, Africa and the U.S. Her ultimate dream is to have a television series based on her Hierarchy/Kingdom universe.

Laura is a member of the Oklahoma Writers’ Federation, the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and the American Christian Fiction Writers. She has a BA in film from the University of Tulsa. She currently teaches English as a Second Language, citizenship, and Bible to refugees and immigrants, specializing in the  Zomi tribe from Burma and Hispanic people groups. She lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma with her two cats.
