About Laura B. Horwitz

Five Fun Facts About Laura

1. Has very limited athletic ability now, but somehow scored a basket against Michael Jordan at the Bulls stadium when she was eight-years-old.

2. Wanted to be a romance writer after seeing the movie “Romancing the Stone,” particularly after Kathleen Turner’s character dubs herself a “hopeful romantic” instead of a “hopeless” one. Laura tries to be a hopeful one herself, but of course some days that’s easier than others.

3. She wrote her first novel during a one week vacation in Hawaii at age 14. It was a 150-page fantasy book called “The Staff of Tarana,” inspired by the Terry Brooks novel “The Sword of Shanara.” No similarities in those titles. :-)

4. Her favorite movie has always been “The Princess Bride,” and she actually dated a boy named Wesley for two years in college.

5. Wrote her first travel memoir after getting dumped by the man she wanted to marry. After a period of drinking and moping, she decided to flee from everyone and everything familiar and went to Africa.

    For a title, how about…”Romance Ghana-wry”?? Ahahahaaa! Okay, I might be the only one that thinks it’s funny, but I cracked a smile, and that’s always a good thing. :) I guess that goes against the whole healing positive aspect though, right? Hmmm…back to the drawing board. :|

      Thanks Jeany. That is a cute idea. I’ll add it to the list. :-) I do want something that emphasizes the healing/positive experiences, but I like that idea.
