Laura Ridyr is an amateur novelist and short story author. She is the author of the published works “The Itch,” “The Last God,” “Crossing Main Street on Colony 12,” and “Your Move, Planet Earth,” and the recipient of the honorable mention for the fiction category of the 2015 Thompson Writing Awards. She is also the author of “Answers,” a work of creative nonfiction. When she’s not beating her head against her keyboard, she can be found moonlighting as a high school teacher or playing fetch with cat number 2 (yes, fetch, yes, cat) while cat number 1 judges from somewhere outside the line of fire.
She currently resides in Aurora, Colorado.
