Laura Quinn is passionate about writing and traveling, and is happiest when combining the two. She is well-trained, and often outsmarted, by her beloved dog and cats. A former user of pay phones, paper maps and VHS players, she now embraces technology…and is a Pinterest addict with over 26,000 pins. Quinn is a forever fan of Duran Duran (30+ years and counting!), from Walkman to iPod. She studied Writing at the Graduate School of Northwestern University and holds a Master of Liberal Arts degree from the University of Chicago. She teaches creative writing at local colleges.
