Laura Sibson

Special Guest Laura Sibson was raised in the Baltimore suburbs. She moved to Philadelphia for her undergraduate degree and then to Virginia and Texas for her first job. After returning east and marrying her college sweetheart, Laura and her husband settled in the Philadelphia suburbs where she pursued her second degree, a Master’s in Education specializing in counseling. After a career in higher education, Laura found space in her life to follow a long held dream to write fiction, which led to obtaining an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts in July 2012. Through writing, Laura has found her passion in telling stories for teens. When not writing in a favorite café or engrossed in a book, Laura might be found running through her neighborhood or traveling far and wide with her husband, two sons and even their yellow lab.
