Meet the Author Laura Sims:

Local New Jersey author, Laura Sims will be visiting the Livingston Public Library on Saturday, November 23 at 3pm.  Laura is the author of four books of poetry, as well as onesims.jpg psychological thriller titled Looker, which was published this year.  

Looker is a story about obsession. A woman becomes fixated and entranced by her neighbor- an actress. This fixation soon grows into an all encompassing obsession that has her collecting discarded items from her neighbor’s front steps looker.jpgand fantasizing about intimate interactions with the neighbor’s husband.  After an interaction gone wrong with her neighbor at a block party, what began as an innocent entrancement quickly becomes an dark unraveling.
