Laraine Anne Barker

Laraine has been "scribbling" (to use her own description) for most of her life, and even submitted a suspense novel to a publisher at age 21. The very kind rejection included praise for her ability to create suspense. However, in the mid 'eighties when she couldn’t find enough fantasy for a fantasy-mad 11-year-old boy, but was entranced by the titles she did manage to find, she turned more to fantasy for young readers. Stalker From Her Past is her second romantic suspense since starting to write for young people.

Laraine lives with her husband and four long-haired miniature Dachshunds (not to mention a flock of white fan-tailed pigeons and half-a-dozen hens) on a 5-acre block sandwiched between two dairy farms in the middle of the North Island of New Zealand. Her husband farms beef cattle, though strictly as a hobby that makes a little money as well as filling up the freezers.

Apart from her dogs and writing, Laraine’s interests include walking, reading and listening to music.
