Author Biography

Laurie L. Bolanos lives below sea level in a small cottage on the edge of a city shaped like a bowl. When given the opportunity, she doesn't mind hopping a few states over to enjoy Gulf breezes and to dip her toes in the ocean. She likes to take long walks on the beach, sip the occasional piña colada, and soak in the rays of the sun. No matter the venue, her preference is to be barefoot. However, she will bend to social expectations and don a pair of shoes when necessary. She enjoys attending a monthly drumming circle at which she was, in fact, told she has a "natural ability." Loving the vibrations of the drum, she has also invested time with tuning-fork therapy, although she has not yet been certified in the art. Laurie comes from an Italian family and can prove it with her DNA results from 23andMe which has confirmed that she is 40.4% Italian. Other nationalities need not feel left out as she also has French, German, British, Irish, Iberian, Balkan, Sardinian, Scandinavian, Ashkenazi, Middle Eastern, West African, and Yakut ancestry, proving by her very existence that we are one world and should not be divided by race.

Awesome in its scope and detail, Prince of Conjurers by Laurie L. Bolanos is a fantastic paranormal love story. Julie is a young woman who has been left by a husband she adored for her best friend. Gathering herself after this heartbreak, she devotes her energies to restoring an old New Orleans home. With a very close friend and a potential new boyfriend, she succumbs to the allure of an old bracelet with an interesting history, and a potion she finds under her floorboards, and experiences the effects of a spell that sends her back in time to a previous life. What she encounters as a young woman of color in 19th century New Orleans, the time of the voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau, sets the stage for the growth of her soul as well as a spiritual trip to other times and places. She wakes up in this strange setting to find herself with Erik, the Phantom of the Opera, who is also searching for his one true love. Will Julie and Erik work together to solve an age-old problem or will their personal goals get in the way of the destiny awaiting them all?

Intense, deeply moving and majestic in scope, Prince of Conjurers by Laurie L. Bolanos takes you through millennia in an amazing tale of reincarnation, desire and true love. Vivid descriptions, fantastic characters, realistic dialogue, and amazing action provide the framework for a timeless story of love and soul searching at its most extreme. Strong emotion drives the plot and Bolanos deftly captures the individual essence of each of the characters, moving them along to their specific destinies. This is an excellent book that truly captures the reader and invites participation in the unfolding drama.
