The Inspiration Behind the Story
When Joyce Durham passed away from colon cancer, the family was then faced with the very difficult task of learning how to deal with their loss.
Laury is good friend's with her daughter, Erika. Witnessing her struggle and that of the Durham family, Laury wished there was someone who could visit with those who had passed over to the other side and bring back messages to the living, reassuring them that all was fine with their loved one. And from it, Magdalene Tanner was born.
Laury went on to write FALLEN in just under two months, releasing it in March 2009.
