Laurie Miller Hornik is an artist, writer, and educator. She earned her BA from Harvard University in Medieval History and Literature in the hopes that she would receive a unicorn along with her diploma, but sadly, she did not. She is the author of two humorous children’s novels, The Secrets of Ms. Snickle’s Class (Clarion, 2001) and Zoo School (Clarion, 2004) and a series of ridiculous posts about her husband, “Retired Rob” (Facebook 2022-23). Currently, she teaches middle school English at a progressive independent school in NYC and resides in Yonkers, NY.
