Janet Tashjian got her inspiration for Larry and the Meaning of Life from one of her favorite natural settings: Walden Pond. "The spirit of Henry David Thoreau fills The Gospel According to Larry, " she says.
"It gives me such pleasure when readers of the first two books discover Thoreau 's Walden. For this new story, I wanted to pay further homage to Thoreau by setting the book at Walden Pond. It 's one of my favorite places on the planet. All the Larry books are fun to write. But this one had me laughing out loud at my desk. "
Ms. Tashjian lives in Los Angeles, California, with her husband and her son.
