books and novels by outstanding independent self-published author Laura Belgrave

Author Laura Belgrave, Mysteries

I’ve personally read everything she’s published to date. Her work is not just good, it’s VERY good. Her fans love her with good cause. Quick-witted, smart, with a dash of sassy, Laura radiates good humor, all graced with a grin. Her work, on the other hand, is serious business — solid and backed up by fact and research. No fake cops or criminals, these, her books take you into the real world of police detective work. But, then, you’d expect nothing less from a journalist who used to cover the crime beat for a major newspaper! — D. L. Keur

The Claudia Hershey Mystery Series by Laura Belgrave

Laura Belgrave, mystery authorAuthor of the popular Claudia Hershey Mystery Series, Laura Belgrave is a journalism graduate of the University of South Florida and a long-time writer and editor whose career has taken her from an “on the beat” crime reporter to city editor of a major Florida daily, then on to the editorial side of the traditional book publishing. Laura struck out on her own when self-publishing began to come of age, and she hasn’t looked back since.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Laura is married to a man she met when they both served in the U.S. Air Force and now calls South Florida ‘home’. When she isn’t working, she’s drawn to anything that has to do with nature: birds, alligators, ducks . . . whatever she can observe and use to perfect her photography.

You can find Laura online at and on Facebook.
