I'm Laura, and I write humorous, pun-filled picture books and spooky middle grade novels. 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 and daughters, two irritable cats, and several sagging bookshelves. I'm represented by James McGowan at BookEnds Literary.

You can also find me on TwitterInstagram
