About the Author

Laura Toffler-Corrie

Laura Toffler-Corrie was born in a big hospital in New York City, but shortly thereafter moved to the little town of Oceanside, Long Island. She loved it when her grandmother would take her to Manhattan, where she remembers her stepping boldly into the street, arm raised high, vigorously shouting "Yoo-hoo! Taxi!" into the onslaught of oncoming traffic, much like Miss Sophia in this book.

During her school years, Laura and her best friend amused themselves by writing each other funny letters and plays about their lives: boys, friends, boys, neighbors, boys, school, dating, boys . . . well you get the picture. This activity actually continued way into college and became the inspiration for her first novel, The Life and Opinions of Amy Finawitz.  Laura holds an M.S. in school psychology, as well as an M.F.A. in dramatic writing from New York University. She and her family live in South Salem, NY.
