Author Lorna LandvikThe Plum Creek Library System presents

Lorna Landvik

Lorna Landvik is the author of ten novels, including the best-selling Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons, Patty Jane's House of Curl, and Oh My Stars.

An actor and playwright, Lorna has appeared in many stage productions. She is a new and passionate neophyte to the practice of yoga, which is a fine antidote to her long established practice of lounging.

Before writing took hold Landvik held jobs that included: a maid at a hotel in Bavaria, a waitress in Hollywood, and temp jobs she explains that included record and television companies (fun), insurance agencies (medium fun), and the Playboy Mansion (weird).

Her latest book, Best to Laugh, echoes her own life experiences as a stand-up comic in California.

These events are free to the public.
