Laura Matthews (Elizabeth Neff Walker) has been writing for more than twenty years. She is the author of thirty novels, mostly Regency (as Laura Matthews) and contemporary love stories. When writing a modern day relationship story (like An Abundant Woman) she especially enjoys dealing with the real issues women face in their interactions with today's men.
Ms. Walker lives in San Francisco with her architect husband Paul and their small dog. Their children are grown, which gives them more time to travel and explore. Ms. Walker actively pursues her research interests (the Regency period and medical sociology) by membership in her local Jane Austen Society and by volunteering at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center.
