D. Lara Smith lives just a short paddle away from the Chesapeake Bay. She is co-founder and co-author of Waterfrontwriters.com, a creative showcase website, and has been published in diverse publications including UP.ST.ART Annapolis magazine, Annapolis Underground, Taste of the Bay magazine, The Herb Quarterly, Corridor Inc., and Chesapeake Taste magazine. Disguised as a business writer, editor and resume writer by day, D. Lara Smith transforms into a chill-seeking, mayhem-creating fiction author at night. Fascinated by everything, her soul’s home is in words and in the beauty of the natural world. She has published two nonfiction books and is completing a work of fiction and a memoir.
