Hello, my name is Laura.
I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota with my wonderful husband, three wily black cats, and a struggling vegetable garden. By way of primary occupation these days, I keep a historic Bed & Breakfast. When not cleaning bathrooms or testing yet another new way to make French toast, I write fiction, play with the local community theater, and try to keep my 117-year-old house from falling apart.
This blog is devoted to whatever tickles my fancy at a given moment. Consider it a grab bag. You’ll likely hear about my adventures in innkeeping (I really do make good French toast), traveling (on the rare occasions when they let me escape from the pillow-fluffing), and getting along with other people (I do the best I can). You’re also bound to hear about my opinions on language, writing, and reading, three of my favorite things.
For blog posts specifically about the work we do on our historic home, you can check out the Unexpected Victorian Blog that Dustin and I both write, and some of my fiction is posted on the next page over.
