Laura Nyman Montenegro

Laura Montenegro found her artistic voice early. She remembers as a child being taken by the hand, like Natalie, to a society of artists, all eccentric, all wonderful. Here she was given the gift of self-acceptance by people well versed in the adventure that is creativity. Laura lives with her husband, Michael, and their two daughters, Sonya and Nina, in Evanston, Illinois. This is her third book for children.
