Laurie Goodman was born in Los Angeles in 1962, the second of six children. She grew up in the East in a variety of locations and remembers her childhood as a mixture of building forts in the living room and taking (one too many) trips cross-country in a station wagon crammed with eight hyperactive people.
She has always had a terrible habit of daydreaming when she should be paying attention, but finally found a use for this in high school when she begain writing her ideas down in order to entain her youngest sister. By college, the writing had become a necessary part of her life.
Her interests vary from theater to ancient Egyptian history, depending on where she is in the library. For now, she is concentrate on educating herself in the sciences. She graduated in 1986 from Stanford university witha B.S. and an M.S. in biochemistry at the University of Chicago.
