Originally from Milltown, New Jersey, she traded bumper-to-bumper traffic, excellent pizza, and summer days down the shore for scenic roads, bears, no pizza delivery, and the irresistible allure of an old stone house surrounded by forests in Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains Region.

My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Laura Wiess
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Live, and let live.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. This is it, right here, right now.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I'm good with who I am.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A.

Perfection (to me) means the end of growth or evolution -- what is perfect is done, complete -- and so it's never been something I've consciously reached for. I love experiencing a thousand constantly shifting shades of happiness.



Close to perfect happiness though, would be spring, with rich sunshine, fresh breezes and life blooming all around me. Spring is exciting, another chance to stretch and reach and begin anew. All things seem possible in spring. It makes me positively giddy.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. I love where I am, so if I added anything it would be hanging out in the shade under the towering weeping willows near the pond with my family and friends, laughing, talking, eating and having a wonderful time.
