Meet the Author

Laurie Lounsbury is a national award-winning journalist and editor who spent most of her writing career covering northern Michigan, including Charlevoix, Petoskey, Beaver Island, Boyne City and Gaylord.

She has spent a portion of every summer of her life in Charlevoix, which was originally known as the Pine River Settlement.

She currently lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she sings in a girl group dance band with great enthusiasm and exceptionally mediocre talent.

She is delighted to become a “budding young author” in the same year she started collecting social security.
