ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Laura Roberts is the author of the forthcoming novel NAKED MONTREAL (scheduled for publication in Autumn 2011). You may remember her from such blogs as Black Heart Magazine ("reading, writing, rebellion"), Shoestring Austin ("because living on a budget doesn't have to suck"), or her saucy column in Montreal's alt-weekly, Hour ("V for Vixen").
An American writer who has been creating online since before there were blogs, Laura is well-armed with her License to Kill Your Darlings, an honors degree in Creative Writing & English Literature from Concordia University, and the ninja skills of a Philosophy degree from Fordham University. Having prowled the mean streets of freelance journalism with only her press pass to shield her from mortal danger, Laura is now a card-carrying member of the national Freelancers Union and is currently available for writing, editing and transcription gigs.
Laura lives, works, and blogs from an Apocalypse-proof bunker in Austin, Texas with her husband, the UnGooglable Man, and her Google-friendly cat, Ned.
