Lacar Musgrove is a writer and historian who lives in New Orleans. She holds a BA in English from Boston University, an MFA in creative writing, and an MA in history, both from the University of New Orleans. She is the world’s leading expert on late 19th century cycling clubs in New Orleans and is not entirely sure how she became that. She, her two dogs, and one cat are the current occupants of a century-old shotgun house that she hopes to finish painting before she dies and intends to haunt either way. When she isn’t writing or painting the house, she helps to build increasingly surreal Carnival floats and waits for excuses to wear costumes. When she grows up, she’d like to be an old lady who plays cards and drinks gin with other old ladies on a porch, taking occasional trips to town to shoplift.
