Meet Laura Bower
Laura is the debut author of The Imposter, set for release in the spring of 2024.
She masterfully mixes heart with humor in this story about Olive, a girl who loves her Mr. Snuggles more than anything else in the world. He's cuddly - reliable - perfect - and, lost. When Mr. Snuggles mysteriously reappears, Olive couldn’t be more excited. Except ... he looks a little too clean, a little too fluffy, and a little too new. He's an imposter!
With illustrator Kerisa Greene on board to give this story her creative touch, readers will be rooting for Olive as she learns to make room for more than just one Mr. Snuggles in her life.
In addition to The Imposter, we are happy to announce our collaboration with Laura on a second book, Emily Snook, The World's Smallest Cook, coming to GRP in the fall of 2024, and whimsically illustrated by Rekha Salin!
Laura Jensen Bower lives in Westchester, NY with her husband, three kids (and their loveys Puppy, Petunia and Nedburt). They have dealt with many imposters over the years! When not writing, Laura loves planning new places to travel, live theatre, walking her dog, Clover, and getting lost in a new craft project.
