Sweet Weight was published by Tiger Bark Press, and Sleeping Upside Down, Silverfish Press, won the Gerald Cable Book Award.

She is a long-time singer with One Voice Mixed Chorus, a professor of writing and women’s history at Minneapolis College, and lives with many pets and her spouse Jan in St. Paul.



Laura Scott is the author of the memoir, The Victory Daughter, published in 2019. It is Laura’s story beginning when she was born so tiny it was unlikely she would live. With the help of the March of Dimes, she not only survived but thrived beyond expectations. Yet she is haunted by the childbirth tragedies of her two siblings before her, and jolted by subsequent losses. In this memoir, Laura learns to cultivate gratitude and courage, emerging victorious.

Laura is a preschool teacher, infant massage therapist, and a proud mother and wife. She lives in Stillwater and values storytelling and keeping loving memories alive.
