Lara Rose recently traded her home in the Rocky Mountains for a city built by the sea. From here (Boston), she studies historical and literary evidence of mental illness, racism, and oppression, and how those systemic issues affect American ideals of home and family. When she isn't studying for her comprehensive exams, she works on her forthcoming children's book in which a small furry creature, the Little Bump Cat, explores ideas of anxiety, adventure, and belonging.
