Barth is the
Associate Editor for Harlequin's World Wide Library Mystery and Suspense
program. Laura loves fast-paced stories with flawed but likeable characters and
enough twists and turns to keep her guessing till the very end. After starting
at Harlequin in 2005 as a proofreader, Laura was promoted to Editorial
Assistant in 2006 and worked her way up through the ranks to her current
position. She first came to the Mystery and Suspense program in the spring of
2012, and has been developing an appreciation for and understanding of the WWL
product and the industry ever since. Laura is excited about growing with the
WWL program, expanding her knowledge of the mystery and suspense genres and
meeting authors and other industry professionals. A fair-weather hiker, cyclist
and balcony gardener, Laura loves spending time in nature and can often be seen
zipping about on her shiny red bicycle, terrorizing Toronto pedestrians. Follow

A zealous reader who loves her iPad and recognizes that ebooks are the future, she still can’t resist the lure of a print book. Abby’s personal library of beloved titles runs the gamut from literary newbies and classics, to cozy mysteries, to sappy women’s fiction, to dark and twisted thrillers. She’s looking for great and engrossing writing, no matter what the genre, and is actively exploring new digital possibilities for books. A magna cum laude graduate of Wellesley College, Abby spends her weekends—when she’s not reading—cooking and hiking with her husband. Find her @BookySaul on Twitter.
