Laurence Dumortier was raised in Paris and London before coming to the U.S. for college. She studied art history at Wellesley College and creative writing at Antioch University. Her writing has appeared in Interview and Detour magazines. She is at work on a manuscript of short stories entitled I Wish I Was a Fool for You.
Dumortier is also co-publisher of Cloverfield Press, a boutique publishing house dedicated to bringing new literary and artistic voices to a discerning public with a hope to create books as visually beautiful as they are intellectually and emotionally stimulating. Cloverfield Press is inpired by the example of Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press which published works by visionaries as well as modern masters, combining them with the best of modern design.
Dumortier lives in Los Angeles, California with her husband, son, and daughter.
