Laura Roberts

Biography

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.
