InD'Introduces: Laura Lovett!


Laura was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, and received her PhD in Psychology from the University of Calgary in 2005. Her love of writing began at an early age when she would create and draw characters, telling stories to herself as she drew.
An accomplished author in the academic and business world, Laura pursued her love of creative writing to pen her first novel,“Losing Cadence.” It was written over many years as Laura juggled school, work and family, but she made time to pursue her passion for writing.
Laura is a psychologist and entrepreneur, currently running practices in the areas of career and leadership development and distributed workplaces. She was nominated and selected as a Distinctive Woman in Canada in 2013. Laura also enjoys teaching at the University of Calgary and has been an Adjunct Professor of Psychology since 2010.
Laura lives in Calgary with her husband, three children and dog, Ghost. She loves playing squash, traveling, and reading, as well as her view of the Rocky Mountains as the snow is falling on her hot tub.

She is a master at the psychological thriller genre and exploded onto the literary scene with that debut novel. Critics and readers alike were fascinated with the knowledge that Lovett displayed in the novel, which features a young woman relying on her strength and courage to survive after she is abducted by her deranged ex-boyfriend. Lovett’s second novel, “Finding Sophie”, takes place twelve years later and focuses on Cadence’s daughter, Sophie, who is about to find out that her father is really Cadence’s ex- boyfriend, Richard.
