Author Laura Schofer discusses "The Fingerprint of Destiny" at the Freeport Memorial Library
Freeport Memorial Library, Monday, August 11 at 7pm
Author Laura Schofer discusses her novel "The Fingerprint of Destiny" and community journalism.

Laura Schofer is an award-winning journalist who has reported on Long Island community
news for nearly 20 years. Ms Schofer has won journalism awards from the National Newspaper Association
and the Press Club of Long Island for environmental as well as investigative journalism.
She has also written about Long Island’s rich history and the people and places that make
America’s first suburb a unique place to live.

“Fingerprint of Destiny” is her first novel, which reflects her experience as a journalist as well as
her family’s Latin American background that hails from Venezuela as well as Argentina.

Additionally, Laura Schofer has written several plays – “Silent History,” a play about famous women
from Long Island and “Cleaning Lessons,” a two character play about a cleaning lady on Long Island.
“Silent History” was produced at the Speigel Theatre at Hofstra University in conjunction with a
conference on Long Island Women. “Cleaning Lessons” was produced in conjunction with the
“Women and Work Performance Project” by NEAR Theatre in Huntington.

Ms. Schofer has an MFA in Dramatic Writing from New York University and a BA from Wheaton College.
She is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists, The Pen and Brush,
and is an associate member of the Dramatist Guild.


"The Fingerprint of Destiny” is a story of arson, murder, love and obsession. In the small suburban community of
Hope's Point, Long Island something has gone horribly wrong. A series of arsons in landmark homes, now run
down and over run by Latino immigrants, is destroying the community. Ellie Sinclair is the troubled,
almost middle-aged publisher of a small town newspaper struggling to make ends meet. The arsons are
just another story, until her estranged mother, Hortensia Borgias Sinclair, returns to town and dies in the latest arson.

Is Hortensia’s violent death her destiny, as she always claimed it would be or is it something more insidious?
Through a series of twists and turns, Ellie must find out who is behind the arsons and why. She must shine
a light in the dark places of her town, the slums and factories, where Latino immigrants struggle to make a
life in suburban America.

And then there is a larger mystery to be solved. All the women in Ellie’s family are born with a small red
birthmark on their left arm, a signature called the Fingerprint of Destiny. In a series of flashbacks, interspersed
throughout the novel, we learn about the violent fate of the other women in Ellie’s family. These stories are filled
with adventure, magic, murder, retribution, love, war and an obsession that spans the centuries and take us
from the jungles and plains of Venezuela to a pristine community of suburban New York. Ellie must figure
out not only the present mystery but also her past and future. Can Ellie carve out a life for herself or will she
succumb to the Fingerprint of Destiny?
