The author

Laura Lee is the author of fifteen books, which include Schadenfreude, Baby!, Blame It on the Rain: How Weather Has Changed History, and Broke is Beautiful: Living and Loving in the Cash-Strapped Life. She is best known for her humorous reference, The Pocket Encyclopedia of Aggravation. The San Francisco Chronicle has said of her work: "Lee's dry, humorous tone makes her a charming companion... She has a penchant for wordplay that is irresistible." Laura brings an eclectic background that includes time spent as a radio announcer, an improvisational comic, and a professional mime. After a three-year stint as a part-time touring public relations director for a Russian ballet company, Laura has returned to her native Michigan where she divides her time between writing and producing ballet educational tours with Russian ballet star Valery Lantratov.
