AUTHOR COACHING – Picture Book Development, Pitches & Queries, and Breaking into the Education Market

I work with authors one-on-one over an extended period time to develop and revise fiction and nonfiction picture books, and to write pitches and queries. I also work with writers interested in the education market to create a submission packet for publishers. The ongoing feedback and support allows authors time for repeated revision and questions and is tailored to the needs of the writer. Click here for more information.

“Laura is a writing coach, editor, and cheerleader all rolled into one! She was supportive of my vision, but also pushed me to go deeper and explore possibilities I had never considered. Laura’s communication skills are also excellent. She responds promptly to emails and is always upbeat and constructive in her comments. I have been so fortunate to have her on my team as I navigate the journey to publication!” ~Rondi, April 2023


I love to do school visits, both in-person and virtually! I currently offer single-day presentations on my fiction picture book, THE FORT, as well as ones on nonfiction topics. In addition, I offer an author-in-residence multi-day workshop on researching and writing nonfiction. I am also happy to tailor a presentation or workshop to fit the needs and interests of a classroom or group.


I do presentations for adults too, including conferences, workshops, and professional development programs. Click here for a menu that includes session, pricing, and scheduling information. Presentations can also be tailored to a groups’ needs or interests.
