Laurie is the author of the novels CONFESSIONS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT and RUDE AWAKENINGS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT. Having spent several years writing her first novel and reading all those proclamations about how aspiring novelists were more likely to win the lottery than ever get published, Laurie is passionate about encouraging other writers. She spent several years as a freelance book editor working with authors of fiction and nonfiction and has taught classes in storytelling technique at Vroman’s, Southern California's oldest and largest independent bookstore.
Laurie can also be found on her own site, janeaustenaddict.com, her Tumblr, janeaustenaddict.tumblr.com, and guest blogs from time to time on various book and culture sites, including PBS.org's Remotely Connected.
