Coffee with a canine: Laurie Sandell & Violet

Today's featured duo at Coffee with a Canine: Laurie Sandell & Violet.

Laurie Sandell is a contributing editor at Glamour where she writes cover stories, features, and personal essays. She has also written for Esquire, GQ, New York, and InStyle, among other publications.

Her first book, published this summer, is the highly-acclaimed graphic memoir The Impostor’s Daughter. Susan Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief, said "The Impostor’s Daughter is funny, frank, and absolutely engaging. It’s about truth and consequences and families and men and women and fame and, well, life itself. It’s wonderful."

Violet is her four(ish)-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix.

One Q & A from the Coffee with a Canine feature:
How did Violet get her name?
