About Laura

Laura was born in New Jersey and raised in Maryland, but she learned how to be a (sane) person in California, where she lost her mind and found it again in 2001. A professionally trained dancer, Laura gave up aches and pains and bloody feet in 2004 to become a stylish sales director for a biotech startup for five years.

While the children learned Serbian in their cozy preschool, Laura recovered from sleep-deprivation and wrote Adopted Reality.
