Hey there! I'm Laura C.J. Owen -- the C. J. is in there so that I am not to be confused with Laura Owens the visual artist, nor with the thousands of other Laura Owens, Lauren Owens, Lauren Olsons, etc. out there.
Yes, I have two middle names.
I'm a writer and teacher. This website contains information about my writing, my teaching, etc. I like to say that I was born in England, raised in Arizona, and that I went to Minnesota for school. But on a lot of my bios I made a typo, so many places on the Internet it says that I was "born England." I have degrees from Carleton College and the University of Minnesota. I currently live in Tucson, Arizona, again. I like to move to places multiple times.
Any black and white photos on this site were taken by this lady. All other photos were taken by my computer.
