Born in 1953, Laura grew up in Stamps,a small town in Southwest Arkansas. Family traditions were strong and relationships even stronger. They are what she loves to write about. She is now a school librarian in Northwest Arkansas.
Christmas is near, and with a new baby brother or sister to arrive soon, two young sisters, Lollie and Lou Ann are kept busy helping Granny. They fill their wagon with favorite pies for each neighbor...including Mr. Gumble (AKA Mr Grumble because the sisters think he is unfriendly). But Granny teaches them a valuable lesson about looking for goodness in everyone and everything!
