Laurence MacNaughton grew up in a creaky old colonial house in Connecticut that he's pretty sure was haunted. He's been a bookseller, printer, copywriter and (somewhat randomly) a prototype vehicle test driver. When he's not writing, he bikes and hikes the Rocky Mountains, explores ghost towns and wrenches on old cars. His books include It Happened One Doomsday, A Kiss Before Doomsday, The Spider Thief, and Conspiracy of Angels. Try his stories free at www.LaurenceMacNaughton.com.
