Laura Montgomery

Laura Montgomery


Laura Montgomery began reading science fiction when she was thirteen, when the local U.S. Air Force base donated many amazing books to the school she attended in northern Thailand. She practices space law in Washington, D.C., and has worked on space tourism and launch safety regulations, which, honestly, are not science fiction. She writes science fiction with a legal twist, and space opera. Her books include Sleeping Duty, a space opera, Manx Prize, a hard science fiction novel about orbital debris, and The Sky Suspended, a novel of lawyers, crowds, and a starship.
