Brown lives in Massachusetts with her quirky abnormal family. Her husband has
put up with her since high school, her young son keeps her on her toes, and her
two cats think they deserve more scratches. Hearing loss is a big part of who
she is, from her own Hard of Hearing ears, to the characters she creates.
Welcome, Laura. Please share a little bit about your current release.

I don’t know how. I’ve only witnessed the kind that ends in divorce.”
What exciting story are you working on next?
My next book is titled MATZAH BALL SURPRISE and it involves a fake date for
Passover. Like A Perfect Mistake, my heroine is hearing and my hero is deaf,
only this heroine doesn’t know ASL!
When did you first consider yourself a writer?

tend to have a decent amount of down time where I can get some words in. A
typical day has me writing on and off, until my days off, where I try and get a
little more in. It’s a hard juggle, but I’m so used to being attached to my
laptop that it comes naturally!
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
being attached to my laptop at all times? LOL! I find that the more difficult
the scene is to write, the more comfortable I need to be. I try and sit at my
desk whenever possible, but I’ll end up in my bed, curled up under covers,
