Meet Laura: NYC crime reporter. Private Investigator. Widow. Mother of eyeball rolling teenagers. Step-mother. Dependable daughter to four sets of parents/in-laws. Blogger. Landlady. Adventurologist. PTA non-joiner trapped in bucolic suburbs overrun with transplanted Brooklynites, yoga studios and neighborhood block parties.
June 2018 book release, “I’m Fine” by Hatherleigh Press/distributed by Penguin Random House, on surviving the death of her journalist husband, and of ultimately not knowing what to do with his ashes. Her memoir takes readers through a portrait of grief, including 31,152 miles of adventure-filled ashes-spreading RV trips across the United States and Canada with her kids and a stray dog in tow where the pink steering wheel becomes her spiritual guide.
