Lauri J Owen
Lauri J Owen is a civil rights lawyer who grew up in Idaho‘s Treasure Valley. She started reading fantasy novels in the third grade, and other than taking time out to sleep, never really stopped. The oldest child of a homemaker and police officer, Lauri worked for more than a decade in law enforcement. But Lauri’s not-so-secret passion is social justice, and so in 2002 she decided to become a lawyer.
After completing U.C. Berkeley’s law school Lauri moved to the Alaska Bush, where she fell in love with the magic and majesty that exemplifies that state. She was selected in 2006 for inclusion in Who’s Who of American Women directory in part for her commitment to civil rights. She currently lives in Arizona with her son and her many rescued cat companions.
Lauri donates the royalties from sales of Fallen Embers & Blowing Embers to no-kill animal shelters.
