Download Biography

Laurie J. Schmitt writes well-crafted, wholesome stories that evangelize and catechize the next generation of saints.

Pulling on her master’s degree in Theology as well as her own experiences as a mother and grandmother, Laurie presents Catholic culture in a positive and historically accurate way, crafting stories which introduce young readers to Catholic heroes, sharing with them the traditions of the Church while encouraging each reader to consider his or her own vocation and call to sainthood.

Laurie, a mother of nine and grandmother of two, has published chapter books–each an adventure in Catholic historical fiction–and has several picture books in the works.

Laurie enjoys cross country skiing, biking, and baking in her home in rural Wisconsin.
