Hi, I'm Laura,
a writer and performer based in Washington DC. I'm the author of HAPPY & YOU KNOW IT and A SPECIAL PLACE FOR WOMEN, with a new novel on the way and some TV/film projects in development.
Some favorite (shorter) writing clips:
Medium: On Grief and Cicadas
Parade: Advice for Overcoming Jealousy
McSweeney's: My Husband, Senator Ted Cruz, Is Just A Regular Guy (named an end of the year favorite by McSweeney's editor Christopher Monks!)
I also write songs, like this one about my indoor book tour for Penguin Random House! And the comedy videos I make with my musical duo, Feminarchy, have been featured on Funny or Die, The Huffington Post, The New York Times, and more.
As a performer, I've been in movies (While We're Young), acted in plays and musicals regionally and off-Broadway, sung with Karen O, and played a five-year-old multiple times. Full performance resume available upon request.
As a human, I once fell off a treadmill twice in one day.
