Laura spends her days writing, researching, editing, crafting, wordsmithing, and just trying to make stuff look and sounds good.

A graduate of Stanford University (undergrad) and USC (grad school), Laura finally fled the chilly Bay Area for the warmer, calmer lifestyle of South Florida.
She currently lives in sunny Boynton Beach with her husband, two loving dogs, and exceptionally clever cat! In her free time, Laura likes to shop for real estate, go to the beach, and volunteer with the Junior League. It’s a good life!
