Mary Laura Philpott

Mary Laura Philpott is the author of Penguins with People Problems, an illustrated humor book for adults that began as a Tumblr devoted to "random penguins" after the Penguin Random House merger. She is the founding editor of Musing, the online magazine produced by Nashville's indie bookstore, Parnassus Books, as well as the co-host of the literary interview show A Word on Words on public television. For fun, she keeps a blog of her own called I Miss You When I Blink. She lives in Nashville with her husband, children, and two ill-behaved dogs.
