About this author

Laura Preble is the author of the popular QUEEN GEEK SOCIAL CLUB series for young adults as well as LICA'S ANGEL. She is the winner of a Kurt Vonnegut Fiction Prize as well as numerous other awards. She lives in San Diego. Her newest novel, OUT, is available as an ebook or in print format.

I was contacted by an amazing young woman named Amelia, who started a program called MAKE IT SAFE. She collects and ships books with positive LGBT messages to high schools so students have a chance of seeing that they are reflected in literature. Here's the link: Check it out!

She asked me to write a blog for her site, so I'm reprinting it here since I sort o...

I love art, and I love Moore, so I loved this book. I was drawn in to the great history of the Impressionists, and the human core Moore gave his characters. As always, there's more than what's on the surface, and visiting 1920s Paris was a great trea...more

I really enjoyed this book (and I don't always enjoy Neil Gaiman...heresy!) I didn't like Graveyard Game, but I really did like American Gods, largely because he mixes in myth, legend, and contemporary events seamlessly (okay, maybe not seamlessly......more

Fool by Christopher Moore

This book is fantastic, especially if you know the play. Moore is a master of humor and wordplay, but also injects great insight and metaphysical questions into all his fiction. Definitely read this.

"I'd love for you to consider my book, OUT. It's YA speculative fiction. "

“here's the thing about friends, I mean REAL friends: You can't just put up a poster at school and advertise for somebody and then hope you find the perfect one. It might work, I guess, but you'd look so pathetic and desperate that no one would want to be your friend, and so it would be kind of pointless”
Laura Preble, The Queen Geek Social Club

“All in all, when I look at my dating life from the bigger perspective, it pretty much sucks. If it were a bar graph, and each guy were a different colored bar, and the side of the graph measured things like stupidity, lack of consideration, and overpowering lust, the colored bars of all the guys I’ve dated would crash through the top of the graph and rocket skyward like a testosterone-fueled rainbow.”
Laura Preble, The Queen Geek Social Club

“See that's it. You can't try to love somebody. You just do it.
