Laura Botsford writes her books with a beseeching belief in possibility. She writes with children, and her voice blends their wonder-working stories into enchanting tales that are moral adventure tales of goodness. The stories she writes with children are luminescent, inspired with poetic nuance. She specially writes them in a tambour for reading out loud. Laura’s spirituality is refreshing, deeply felt, charmingly clear and truly in step with the genre of authors such as C.S. Lewis and Frank L Baum.
“This is a fantastic concept — having children create their own books within a structured program that, nevertheless, permits them to utilize every aspect of their imagination and then experience the great satisfaction of seeing their creations materialize to be shared by others.” Lois Duncan – Author
“Laura displayed the competence and creativity that have marked her professional involvement in our community. She has established a reputation as an extremely capable, effective coordinator, public relations person, and a friend. Laura has the capacity to work independently if needed. She can be entrusted with difficult, long-term assignments, knowing that they will be completed in a thorough and efficient manner.” Linda Armour – Lakeside High School Principal
