Laure loves reading and writing science fiction. The only science she officially studied, however, was while obtaining degrees in Finance and in International Business. There was Chemistry for Business Majors (i.e. For Dummies); the others were in Astronomy, including one using science fiction novels!
Besides fifteen years as a New York City financial journalist and editor, she's been an amusement park ride operator, a stained glass artist, a pizza deliverer, draftsman and paste-up artist (BC, before computers), slaving at a private post office, as an assistant at a Texas land-development company, a phone center caller, and teacher of most things she knows how to do.
Despite all those years of reporting just the facts as a journalist, she now utterly enjoys making things up.
Her Brooklyn-bred husband and their canine princess Pomeranian—named Penelope—happily live on the prairie in Fairfield, Iowa.
Laure is always on the lookout for real magic: knowing what’s about to happen, changing a trend from inevitable to a choice, feeling bliss from nothing. Having been a teacher of Transcendental Meditation for a good long time, Laure has come to deeply appreciate the magic of silence—as well, those quirky thoughts that inevitably come up during meditation.
