|Baby Laurel (in the green) with her parents and twin brother.|
I grew up in the Napa Valley, the daughter of a winemaker and a landscape gardener. My parents and twin brother now live in Ashland, OR. I came to the Bay Area to go Mills College where I studied English and I went on to get my M.F.A in Creative Writing from New York University. I have been a legal secretary for many years and I currently work at a progressive law firm in the city. I try to keep my creative side alive and write fiction and creative nonfiction.
I also practice a very cool Indonesian martial art at a great school in Oakland. I am very excited to become a part of the Grace family!
