Lara Reznik, a native New Yorker, escaped to New Mexico in the 1970s in a Karmann Ghia that she jump-started cross-country. As an English major at the University of New Mexico, Lara studied under esteemed authors Rudolfo Anaya and the late Tony Hillerman. She also attended a program at the prestigious Iowa Writers Workshop.


Ambidextrous from birth, Lara preferred her right-brained creative side, but discovered she could make a better living with her left-brain skills, so entered the I.T. field in 1985.


Since the breakout success of The Girl From Long Guyland in November 2012, Lara retired from her day job in I.T. to write full time. The M&M Boys followed in January 2014. Currently, Lara lives with her husband and two mini-Australian Shepherds in Austin, TX, and is busy at work on Bagels & Salsa a romantic suspense novel and prequel/sequel to The Girl From Long Guyland.
