Laura Lascarso wants you to stay up way past your bedtime reading her stories. She aims to inspire more questions than answers in her fiction and believes in the power of storytelling to heal and transform a society.

When not writing, Laura can be found screaming “finish” on the soccer fields, rewatching Avatar: The Last Airbender, and trying to convince politicians to act on climate change. She lives in North Florida with her darling husband and two kids. She loves hearing from readers, and she’d be delighted to hear from you.

I did leave it deliberately vague for a couple of reasons. One, the age difference between them is the thing that Master always harkens back to as a reason for Giovanni to explore other options. It is also the reason why Master hesitated in the formation of their relationship. This causes Giovanni great anxiety, so he chooses not to focus on it, in a way that makes his omission deliberate in his telling of the tale. ("If I don't say it/acknowledge it, it doesn't exist.") If he alludes to Master's age, it is only in the context of it being an advantage, and he quickly deflects or demurs when other people raise it as a concern. Second, as a narrative device, I wanted the reader to wonder "just how old is this guy?" and I left it vague because I wanted to allow for each individual reader to interpret it for themselves. And because I wanted each reader to appreciate Master for all that he encompasses without the prejudice (and sometimes judgment) that comes along with knowing a person's age.(less)

“I exhale slowly, ten, nine, eight... counting backwards without meaning to, but it feels better than counting up, because at one it will be over, right?”
Laura Lascarso, Counting Backwards

“...You're worried that you're going to go out of here and mess up your lines or trip on your high heels, but you're not. You're going to blow them away, just like you always do. You're a woman who knows what she wants, and you know how to get it. You're going to be the most, Margo, to say the least.”
Laura Lascarso, Counting Backwards

“Make sure you fall for what's on the inside and not on the outside, otherwise you're just buying an empty box.”
