Please don't bother emailing Laurie asking for help with your homework. You won't get it. High school was bad enough for Laurie the first time around, thanks. One of the greatest joys of surviving to adulthood, in her opinion, is the lack of homework.
You'll find all the personal details about her life you need on the Laurie page of this website. It has a short bio as well as the Officially Long Official Biography of Laurie Halse Anderson.There's a FAQ, Contact Info…oh, just go and see for yourself already!

If you have a question that you would like Laurie to answer, you can reach out to her on Twitter https://twitter.com/halseanderson or Goodreads http://www.goodreads.com/author/10003.Laurie_Halse_Anderson/questions .
