In the early mornings, local San Marcos author Laura Oles tends to her latest work in progress while her current reads – a fiction novel and Charles Duhigg hardback — are right next to her.
Oles was recently named one of 10 finalists in the Killer Nashville Claymore Award competition for her manuscript – “Daughters of Bad Men.”
