Hi, I’m Laura!

I write humorous, pun-filled picture books. I can also tap dance, tell terribly cheesy jokes, and bake a mean chocolate chip cookie!

When I’m not writing or reading books, you can usually find me in the kitchen (cooking up something delicious) or playing outside (hiking, kayaking, or hanging out in trees).

I live in upstate New York with my husband, daughters, two irritable cats, and several sagging bookshelves.

Coming May, 2022 from Viking/Penguin Random House
