  • Sunday Snippet: The Opening Up Edition

    Not a lot to share with y’all today because we are super busy opening up the lake cottage this weekend. It’s the first time we’ve been up here since late September and although we have sticks to pick up in the yard and the place is dusty and needs a serious vacuuming, all in all, things weathered winter very well without us. There’s a particular scent that always pervades the first weekend of being at the lake–it’s a mixture citronella and watermelon candles, mothballs (to keep the critters away) and pink antifreeze, bleach and a slight mustiness that means you’re at the lake. This year, it hit us as soon…

  • Laura Brown Has a New Release!

After spending her childhood coming up with new episodes to her favorite sitcoms instead of sleeping, Laura Brown decided to try her hand at writing and never looked back.

They live in Massachusetts with two cats with cerebellar hypoplasia, and an energetic kid who keeps them on their toes.

  • Sunday Snippet: The Validation Edition

    You know who I envy? Writers who have complete faith in their work and themselves. The ones who write a book and always know immediately that it’s great stuff and is going to sell like hotcakes. Or the ones who may know their work needs help, but believe so strongly in their own stories that they push on, striving to make them better. They never doubt their abilities or spend days wondering what they’re doing trying to write a novel, for Pete’s sake. They don’t wonder if they’re fooling everyone, including themselves, with this whole author thing. Sometimes, I can be that writer. When a scene works perfectly, when I’ve…
