Laila is part of the LGBTQ+ community and identifies as both a lesbian and asexual. When she’s not writing, Laila enjoys cosplaying, crocheting, and resin art. She’s a shieldmaiden at heart, has a love for snarky pirates, and is distantly related to Blackbeard. She lives somewhere deep in the Midwest with her fiancée and their dogs, Moo and Shiro.

She is represented by Moe Ferrara at Bookends Literary Agency.
