About the Author and Book

Nicola Harrison is the author of three historical fiction novels,  Montauk, The Show Girl, and Hotel Laguna. 

Born and raised in England, she moved with her family to Southern California when she was 14. She is a graduate of UCLA and received her MFA from Stony Brook University. Prior to writing novels she worked as a fashion journalist in New York City, where she lived for 17 years. Now she resides in Manhattan Beach, California, with her husband, two sons and a high-maintenance chihuahua named Lola.

Her book, Hotel Laguna, follows trailblazer Hazel Francis, from the female-staffed factories of World War II to the sun-splashed beaches of southern California, on a daring journey to demand more for herself.
