On the evening of her 26th birthday in 1989, Laura Chagnon was attacked and left for dead on the doorstep of the New England Medical Center. Her life changed that night…for the better after spending nearly five weeks in a coma and awaking a legally blind quadriplegic. Laura then spent four years in a rehabilitation facility when doctors wanted to instead have her institutionalized. She forgives her still unknown attacker for leaving her with the gift of poetry. “I’d gladly trade my legs in exchange for the ability to write poetry,” says Laura.
During a journey that has lasted twenty-five years, Laura has composed over 5,000 poems. She composes from sun up to sun down. Her soulmate Tom calls her a poetry machine. Moon-Dusted Blue is the third book of poetry that Laura has created. Following the success of her books, Never Touched a Pen and Accepting the Waltz, Laura is back at it again with Moon-dusted Blue.
