For the latest updates on works in progress and other musings, please head to http://hlaurencelareau.com/blog/ to check out my blog--it's updated weekly. (Once I figure out the mechanics of feeding my blogs to this page, they'll show up below.)

H. Laurence Lareau fell in love with romances the first time Pride and Prejudice came home from the library with him. Since that high school summer, he has earned an English degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, worked as a broadcast journalist, built a career in law, and has remained a Jane Austen junkie through it all.

The Newsroom Romance series draws from his careers, his voracious reading, and his curiosity about the tensions between real life and real love.

Real life now is dramatically different from the real life of Austen's times--privileged women no longer choose between eligible members of the landed gentry, nor are they imperiled by the sexist mysteries of the entailed fee simple estate in land.

Modern women with the privileges of education rather than birth now embark upon careers that can satisfy many personal and material dreams. Seemingly inevitably, though, they fall short of the promise that they'll fulfill women as people.

Strong, modern women have defined Lareau's professional and personal lives, and strong women fully occupy center stage in their newsroom romance stories. Their high-profile journalism and legal careers matter deeply to them and to the people they serve.

Then love comes walking in. These book boyfriends don't have kilts or billions or pirate ships, though. Their career goals meet and often clash with their counterparts, requiring both the men and women to make hard choices about what happily ever after should look like and how to achieve it.

When he isn't writing, practicing law, or raising children, he's working on martial arts and music.
