Lauralana Dunne has proven herself to be a force to be reckoned with in Canadian writing circles. In December 2018 her short story, ‘Venus Flytrap,’ was featured in the astonishing collection Kit Sora: The Artobiography, which paired talented authors with the artist known as Kit Sora to achieve spectacular combinations of story and photography. She was heavily featured in the bestselling anthology Dystopia from the Rock with two short stories, “Future Tense” and “Future Imperfect.”
She joined that 2018-2019 Board of Directors of the Writer’s Alliance of Newfoundland in October 2018, an organization which contributes to a supportive environment for writing in the province and fosters public recognition of Newfoundland & Labrador writers.
She describes herself as a slayer of imaginary monsters.
In June 2020, Engen Books will release her first novel, a New Adult Fantasy titled Ashes.
