Author Laurice LaZebnik with two best friends–Herbie and Zelda–in front of the Kentucky Point home that she shares with her husband, Bob.

Clark Lake author Laurice LaZebnik’s latest book has just been published, and the main character in the storyline has roots from this area.  The Atomic Sailor is based on the fascinating real life stories of Admiral James H. McLaughlin, who lived in Brooklyn for part of his life.  Laurice interviewed him extensively, most often over breakfast at the Brooklyn Big Boy.  What came out of these discussions is an engaging story in a book that you won’t want to put down.   Details to follow on this website.

Laurice LaZebnik has also written Strongheart, A Dog Who Was a Coward.  It is available for sale at Doyle’s on Hyde Road.
