La Onque (Lay on`kway) Chavette is a wife, mother, friend, author and cheerleader to many.  She was born and raised in New Jersey and is proud to be Jersey Strong. She is an alumna of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey in New Brunswick and is a trained Paralegal with 20 plus years of experience in both public and private law.  She has specialized in litigation, elder law, public health law and family law, with a recent focus on Quality Improvement, Performance Management, Continuity of Operations Planning, and Active Shooter Response (ASR) training.

Having a love for creative writing, La Onque embarked on telling a didactic, fictional story in her debut novel, We Made Plans, which chronicles the lives of a group of friends, individually and collectively, and incorporates the harsh truths of #TheEvent into their story.   Particularly, how devastating #TheEvent is to the families and how the fabric of their lives are forever changed. #THEEVENT

 A Note from The Author...

Hi, It's  La Onque.

I hope you all are healthy and well during this horrible Covid 19 pandemic.  I'm so excited to share with you that my debut novel is now available online at Barnes & Noble, Walmart, amazon, and through your local bookstores.   It's called  We Made Plans and it is a powerful piece taken right out of today's headlines. It's riveting and real.

The pandemic cancelled many of our plans, including my east coast tour this past winter/spring.  However, as I celebrate the 1 year anniversary of my debut novel, please help me celebrate with you! 

I'm now booking for

  • Zoom Bookclubs,

  • Virtual Meetups ,and

  • Live author talks.
