Welcome

I am the author of World Gone Missing, a short story collection coming from Regal House Publishing this October. Bestselling author Edan Lepucki writes, the book has “a grace that is both refreshing and rare.” My work has won the Alligator Juniper National Fiction Award and been nominated for Best New American Voices and the Pushcart Prize. Stories and essays have appeared in The Los Angeles Review, Timber, Jabberwock Review, Road Story Anthology, Under the Sun, and elsewhere. I co-founded Babylon Salon, a San Francisco literary series celebrating its tenth year, and teach writing at The Writers Grotto and UC Berkeley

You can read some of my writing on the “Awards and Publications” page. I’d love to hear from you.

“Laurie Ann Doyle understands how to structure a story so that it sneaks up on you and gives you a thump that leaves you breathless—breathless with wonder.” -Catherine Brady, Winner of the Northern California Book Award

“Doyle's stories are mesmerizing. They teem with life, real life, no easy answers in sight. In a time when worldwide Clever Competitions are in full display, she showcases the struggles pumping through all our veins.” -Joshua Mohr, SF Chronicle best-selling author of three novels, most recently Damascus
