About Laura Anne
For as long as she can remember, Laura Anne Bird has had a stack of at least 15 books sitting next to her bed. Many of them are library books, and many of them are overdue, which means she spends a good deal of cash paying off her fines each month. But she believes that it is worth every penny to surround oneself with great literature.
An English major from the University of Notre Dame, Laura writes professionally as a fundraising consultant for a handful of non-profit organizations. She writes grant proposals, direct mail pieces, and special event scripts, but what brings her a deeper sense of joy and meaning is reviewing books and finding the humor in her experiences as a mother of three at The Whole Fairy Tale. She also writes a quarterly feature for BRAVA Magazine called “On Her Bookshelf.”
Laura lives in Madison, WI. When she’s not folding copious baskets of laundry or reading her favorite genre of literary fiction, she spends her time running, cooking, and taking her blind dog on walks (yes, really).
