More About the Author
Laura Pavlo is a graphic designer by day and writer by night. She graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.A. in English (minor in Creative Writing) and a B.A. in Graphic Design.
Her short stories have been published in Four Chambers Press, Stylus Literary Journal, and The Walrus Journal. She won first place for her novella "Ellipsis" for the Jimenez-Porter Writers Prize, and second place for both "Front Lawn" and "The F Train Downtown" for the Jimenez-Porter Writers Prize.
She's conquered James Joyce's Ulysses twice. She loves books (Hemingway, Beckett, Zafon, Bender), film (Birdman, Magnolia, Lincoln, A Clockwork Orange), television (The Sopranos, Mad Dogs, Misfits, Curb Your Enthusiasm), and art history (Whistler, Duchamp, Wyeth, Hopper). Yelp bestowed Elite status upon her three years in a row for her acclaimed and notoriously witty reviews, and while she loves writing about personal nonfictional experiences, she will choose fiction first, always.
