Laura Roberts can leg-press an average-sized sumo wrestler, is a word-game enthusiast who sucks at Scrabble, and has written at least one of her novels in just three days. She is the founding editor of Black Heart Magazine and publishes whatever strikes her fancy at Buttontapper Press. She currently lives in an Apocalypse-proof bunker in sunny SoCal with her artist husband and their literary kitties, and can be found on Twitter @originaloflaura.
Blurring the lines between fact and fiction, Laura has penned 14 books, including the alphabetical travel guides Montreal from A to Z and San Diego from A to Z, the offbeat writing guides NaNoWriMo: A Cheater’s Guide and Confessions of a 3-Day Novelist, and the satirical adventure tale, Ninjas of the 512. She is also the editor of the poetry collection, Haiku for Lovers, and the new annual anthology, Everything I Need to Know About Love I Learned from Pop Songs.

"Top 5 Reasons You Can't Get Laid in Montreal" is a very short work that borrows from the author's upcoming novel, "Naked Montreal." Despite having never been to Montreal, not speaking French and not desiring to get "laid" by anyone north of Minneapolis, I found this sample more than whetted my appetite for the novel. The top five reasons are funny enough, but it's the additional list at the end that killed me. Don't blush if you find this under the sex section. Roberts plugs enough good-natured humor in these brief pages to satisfy readers in any genre.
