Laurel's Reading Mysteries Again

 

Our favorite master of puzzling, Laurel Stoddard, has been at it again. Laurel composes the Word Puzzles for our AAERT newsletter. Since Laurel is an avid reader, this quarter she's been perusing the mystery section of her library. When she comes across a novel word, Laurel makes an electronic note of the word to use in one of her future puzzles. Do you love to be baffled and perplexed? See if you can solve Laurel's word puzzle. We think you will find it mystifying and mind-boggling!

Laurel came of age in a small town in north Texas and ventured fewer than 30 miles, though worlds away, to attend a small Presbyterian liberal arts college, from whence she obtained a bachelor's degree in biology. Her first literary accomplishment was a letter, at the age of 5, to request that her parents allow her and her sister to open early just one volume of the encyclopedias that were awaiting Christmas morning. She remains passionate about words. Owner of On the Record Reporting & Transcription, she has worked in the industry since 1984.
