Laurel Winter:
(07/16/2007) Laurel Winter, after 47 ½ years in states that border Canada, has relocated to the South. (The north and west of the South, though!) She happily resides in Asheville, North Carolina, where she spends a lot of time meditating in coffee shops and writing poetry and stories and novels and metaphysical somesuch & (eep!) screenplays. Check out her blog at unless (& she truly hopes this is the case!) you have better things to do. (Oooh! "egg horror poem" was recently reprinted in a 9th-grade literature textbook.)
