One of the things I enjoy most about being a writer is connecting with readers and writers—pre-published and published.

If you’re interested in inviting me to speak at your book club or writing luncheon, workshop, conference, or weekend retreat, this is the place to drop me a line.

Success! Message received.

“The way Laurie engaged and energized the audience at the retreat center was magical. Clear, confident, and captivating, from the moment she started speaking, and throughout her often hilarious yet compelling presentation, she held us in the palm of her hand. It felt like she had known the audience for a long time because she connected with us so well.”

Allison Elliot, author of Hot Flashes, Cool Wisdom
