About Laurenne Sala
Laurenne Sala began her career as an advertising copywriter, writing national campaigns for clients like KIA Motors, Jack-in-the-Box, and Beats by Dre. She has written everything from the copy on a VitaminWater bottle to funny videos for BuzzFeed. After hiding lots of family drama during her teens and twenties, she finally told all her secrets on stage and in writing, which helped her feel such catharsis that she started her own storytelling show, Taboo Tales. She leads writing workshops and speaks at colleges around the country in order to help others create comedy pieces out of their authentic stories and give them the opportunity to release them on stage in front of a live audience. Laurenne’s first foray into children’s books is You Made Me a Mother, with You Made Me a Father coming shortly after. She’s fallen in love with the kid lit community, and she hopes there’ll be many more picture books to follow. Find out more at laurennesalabooks.com
