April news

I would like to say a HUGE thank you to all my wonderful family and friends for thinking of me on my birthday. You are all the best. I wanted to take a moment to let you all know that so far year 44 in the life of Laura is going great. There are several really exciting things coming up for me in April alone that I’d want you all to know about. Firstly I have a T.V. interview coming up with “Turn to the Stars” host Andrea Klim. I believe that will be airing on the 22nd, but I will get back to you all when I am sure. On the 23rd, I will be at The Yard holistic fair in Manchester, singing copies of my new book Thinking Outside the Quadrilateral Parallelogram from 10 to 4. And on the 25th at 9:45 I will be doing a live national radio interview with Stu Taylor. If anyone would like to listen, they can either stream it live at, Stu Taylor on Business. Or you can go to Stu’s website StuTaylor.com to find out which local station it will be airing on.
Thank you all, for always believing in me. It has meant everything to me.
Blessed be, Laura

Until then I would like to extend a humongous Thank You to all of you who have supported and believed in my dream to be an author. Without all of you, none of this would be possible.

If you give a Cross Roads Demon a plate of cookies,

This ones for all you Supernatural fans out there. Cheers!

If you give a Cross Roads Demon a plate of cookies,
He’ll take it back to hell with him, and try to hide it from all the other Cross Roads Demons;
But of course they will find it.
And when they do, they will hang the first Cross Roads Demon by the hair, and gobble up the cookies as fast as they can.
In fact, they will gobble them up so fast; they won’t even notice the Enochian sigil impressed on each one.
And when the Cross Roads Demons eat the Enochian sigil, they will find themselves bound to a Guardian Angel.
And when a Cross Roads Demon and a Guardian Angel are bound to each other, neither Angel nor Demon can do anything without the others consent.
Which of course will mean that Crowley and Cass will have to pay a visit to the boys.
And if Crowley and Cass pay a visit to the boys, then Dean will ask if they brought the cookies.
And if Dean asks if they brought the cookies, then Cass will tell him, “You can’t eat the cookies Dean, they are incredibly dangerous.”
And once Dean understands that the cookies are dangerous, he will set Sammy to “Start doing some research.”
And when Sammy does the research, he’ll discover that there is an unpublished Caver Edlund text, which may mention something about binding Angels and Demons, currently in the possession of a Demi- God deep inside Louisiana swamp country.
And once they vanquish the Demi- God and read the text, they will discover that the text refers to a recipe on the demon tablet, and since they don’t have the demon tablet anymore, all they can do is go back to the bunker and comb through Kevin Tran’s notes.
And when they go back to the bunker and comb through Kevin Tran’s notes, Sam will discover the recipe for the Demon and Angel binding cookies, but the recipe calls for, milk from the fatted calf, an egg from a red cockerel laid at moonrise on the summer solstice and, flour ground from the Manna gathered on Mount Sinai, along with several other non-conventional ingredients.
After reading the recipe Dean will say, “Awesome, who the hell has that kind of crap laying around their kitchen?”
To which Cass will answer flatly, “You do.”
And once every one understands that the ingredients for the cookies are in the bunker’s kitchen, Sam, Dean Cass and Crowley will all head that way.
Half way there Crowley will say “Moose, Squirrel, I think you’ve got mice in your pantry; listen.” At which point the others will notice the refrain from “Carry On My Wayward Son” coming from behind the kitchen doors, which will cause Sam and Dean to draw their guns, and Crowley and Cass to make speculatively resigned faces at each other before moving on.
And when Sam, Dean, Cass and Crowley all go into the bunker’s kitchen, guns and supernatural powers cocked and ready, they will find, Kevin, Bobby, Charlie, and you.
And when Same, Dean, Cass and Crowley all stop short, just over the threshold staring at you, Charlie, Kevin, and Bobby, you’ll all say, “Hello Boys.” Just before the music swells.

Watch Your Step

“All right beautiful, just wanted to make sure you guys were o.k.” Reggie said using his most soothing tone in an attempt to diffuse his wife’s mood. She was always slightly agitated at the end of the two hour drive to her sister’s house with three kids in the back seat. Add to that the news that he was on the phone looking for her as soon as she walked in the door and she could get positively short tempered.
He didn’t mind, she’d get over it by the time they got back, besides it served the dual purpose of making him look like a dotting, protective husband and making the call to her sisters number rather than the cell phone gave him the reassurance he needed that he was free for the weekend. It was a safety measure he’d implemented after a near disaster when one of the kids had started throwing up halfway there.
“Ok” he said now in response to her harried assurances that she loved him but one of the kids had just knocked over a plant. “Have fun at your sisters beautiful, can’t wait to have you back in my arms.”
Hanging up with his wife he hit the next number in his contacts list before his phone had time to go black. Just like always she picked up on the third ring. “Hey sexy.” She said by way of greeting.
“Hey beautiful.” He answered, using another trick he’d learned out of necessity; you couldn’t mix up the wife and the girlfriends’ names if you used the same endearment for both. “The kids’ aunt just picked them up for a surprise weekend at her house, want to come over.”
“Ohh.” She squealed “someday I’m going to have to meet that woman and thank her.”
“Someday beautiful.” He promised and then putting just the right amount of stress into it he added. “I just don’t think the kids are quite ready for that Bethany.” He used her name deliberately there, it added sincerity. “You know I appreciate how patient you’ve been so far but I can’t put a time table on how long it will take the kids to get over their mothers’ death. If you’re tired of waiting, if you want to move on I’d understand.”
“No nono Reg,’ she interrupted a little desperately, just as he’d known she would. Playing the grieving widower left with three small and vulnerable children was the best cover he’d come up with yet. Had the duel benefit of keeping him tantalizingly on the edge of being available without looking bad for not being able to commit. “I didn’t mean it that way. Give me an hour to make myself presentable and I’ll be right over.”
“Ok beautiful,” He said “but only if your sure.”
“Double sure.” She told him.
“See you in an hour then. Can’t wait to have you back in my arms.” Hanging up he smiled at his own cleverness, didn’t even have to take the pictures off the wall this way, though it would be suspicious if he smelled of his wife’s perfume. Reluctantly he headed to the shower. He hated to do it, it really turned him on when he could go from one directly to the other. Just thinking about it got him going. He hesitated a moment then decided to go ahead and pleasure himself while he was in the shower it should make him last longer anyway and Bethany loved that.
For the next twenty minutes he relived last night with his wife, throwing in a few bonus scenes he planned on enacting over the weekend with his girlfriend.
When he finally climaxed he couldn’t help but smile at the puddle of cream colored spluge that hit the shower floor just outside the splash zone. With one hand braced against the shower wall and the other still wrapped around his manhood he reached out with one foot to nudge the ejaculate toward the drain. Miscalculating his foot landed in the middle of it and flew out from under him. The back of his head hitting the tub spigot on the way down knocked it to an improbable angle and fixed the leering rather inane grin to his face.
It was the first thing Bethany registered when she found him a half hour later, at the bottom of the tub; one arm flung upward the other still cupping his favorite toy. A fact she explained rather awkwardly to his less than dead wife at the hospital latter that night.

Press Release

My friend Pamme Boutselis wrote this up for me. Isn’t it fantastic? Pamme is insanely busy working woman, mother, soon to be grandmother and a talented author (you should check out her blog) and yet she found time to put this together for me; somehow saying thank you doesn’t seem like enough, but as it’s all I can come up with.
THANK YOU PAMME

Supernatural Adventure Author to Appear at
Barnes & Noble in Nashua

Nashua, NH (January 11, 2014) – Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Nashua will host new author Laura Ryan Fedelia on Saturday, February 1, 2014. She will be signing copies of her supernatural adventure, “The Box,” from 1 to 3 p.m.

A massage therapist and busy mom by day, Fedelia has been writing for the past decade and only recently turned that writing into her first book. “The Box” delves into the life of Pan Blair, a stay-at-home mother of three, whose decision to take a more active role in her own life leads her into an epic adventure she never could imagined playing a part in, let alone leading.

“I love the idea of a single flawed and uncertain individual taking on a responsibility so incredible and not because they had any special abilities or qualification, but simply because circumstances and their own sense of humanity left them no other choice,” said Fedelia.

Barnes & Noble Booksellers is located at 235 Daniel Webster Highway in Nashua. “The Box” is currently available at the store and online at http://www.bn.com. For information regarding the signing, please contact Community Relations Manager KC Christensen-Lang at 603.888.5961.

The leasons of life

Happy happy New Year to all. I hope this year brings good news, productive challenges and positive growth to us all.

I’ve been thinking a lot the past few days about the changes a year can bring, good and bad, monumental and small, expected and un.
While sifting through the aforementioned instances throughout my life, I realized, my whole life I have been waiting for someone to rescue me. When I was little I would wait for my mother to save me from the monster in my closet or the boggy man under the bed but she wasn’t able too being busy trying to evade her own demons. That’s when I established my imaginary standing army of tiny infantry men permanently stationed around every door and window in my room.

Latter I expected one day my Dad would storm into our apartment and deliver me from a more tangible threat I called my step father, but my Dad was far away and again had his own demons to battle. And so I started to day dream about a teacher or a long lost relieve swooping in to defend me from the bullies and insensitive authority figures that seemed to inhabit all areas of my world at the time. When ever I approached a likely candidate however they without exception were uninterested in the job I was offering them. (In fairness the benefits were mostly un-redeemable on this plane of existence.)

And so as I grew up I learned not to ask people for help or tell people too much, both had dangerous associations. For if you asked a person for help they would want something in return and if you told a person how you felt or what you thought they could use it against you. Out of necessity I learned lots of evasion techniques and as I grew up I developed a reputation for being sarcastic and a bit crusty though dependable and honorable. It was good, I was safe, though alone and often lonely especially in a crowd. Secretly I longed for my hero to come along. That one soul Ms. Austin’s novels promise to every introvert, who sees past our defenses to our extremely vulnerable core and loves us for it, is willing to battle through every obstacle we throw in there way and cherishes our hard won trust when it is finally granted.
What I didn’t realize at the time was once the grand gesture has been made and the princess is safely ensconced in his castle the hero can start to feel unfulfilled and restless.
So what did I do when I discovered my champion had moved on to other damsels? I turned to all of you, the world I had up to that point been carefully hiding from, convinced that the righteousness of my cause would draw support from like minded strangers world wide thus rescuing me from the tower dungeon I had built myself. (after all Facebook, the local news and YouTube are littered with those kind of successes stories. Why shouldn’t it happen for me?)
But my grand foray fell flat and I sheepishly admit I despaired. Until yesterday morning when the enormity of my own stupidity became uncomfortably clear. The lesson the universe had been laboring to teach me since I have been old enough to form a memory.
Be your own hero Laura.
Start today.
