Laura A. Lord is the author of numerous collections of vignettes and poetry and one awesome children’s book about a T-Rex screwing up her entire day. It’s absolutely a true story. She blogs over at historyofawoman.com, where she mostly writes poetry and occasionally a funny tale from her not-so-glamorous past. You can find her on twitter @LauraAshleyLord and these days, she’s there without the wine. Scary.
