I first met Laura Lee in the winter of 2008. She had only been in New York for little less than a year and was ready to make her mark. I had seen a zine she had published and was impressed with how she used metaphors to get her ideas across. She began to post her drawings to her blog www. whoislauralee.blogspot.com. I found them all very intimate, tender and honest. I knew that there was a graphic novel in her but to be sure I sent editor extraordinaire Maggie Lehrman a link to Laura Lee's blog. Next thing ya know ( 8 months later ) Laura is working on her first Graphic Novel Page by Paige!
