A second-generation wordsmith, Laura fell in love with The Craft in fifth grade while taking edits from her father in her native town, Tallahassee, Florida. She spent her high school summers reading every book and play in her parents’ voluminous library – when she wasn’t performing in plays, singing in concerts or tearing down pool lanes in swim meets.
Today, she shares her Northwest Austin home with her UT-Austin professor-husband, their rather noisy 18-year-old and 16-year-old boys, and a scoundrel collie named Cuervo.
