Her prose is consistently clean and unencumbered by superfluous words. “Do you remember how Mama begged? Can you see once again the pool of blood as she lay dying?” from Family Reunion.
What’s most impressive about her work is her keen mastery of subtlety and misdirection. “‘I'd like to spend some time with you.’ Paul drew his lips across the back of Amy's hand, watching her shiver in reaction. She would be easy prey tonight.” from Need.
In reference to creating works of flash fiction, and her participation in a weekly “#fridayflash” forum, Laura shares her own personal feelings with us. “At first, #fridayflash seemed like a fun way to connect with a few fellow writers, but it’s become so much more than that to me. As I’ve seen my readership grow and take in the comments left, I realize that I’m making a connection with a much broader audience that enjoys my stories. That’s very gratifying to any writer.” The author continues. “I am the proverbial introverted writer, sitting alone in a room, clacking away at a typewriter. This experience has forced me to push beyond my perceived limits, both in terms of coming up with new stories on a regular basis and forging into the unknown...” from A Conversation with Laura Eno on Mad Utopia.
