About Me

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to write.

Lists, notes , plans, stories, thoughts written on the corner of a newspaper, ideas on the margin of a favorite book, or on page after page in personal journals.

Writing opens up my mind and my heart.

It’s the best way for me to get a straight run on the million of ideas that bump into each other in my brain.

Blogging is my ideal job — no schedule, boss, commute and  no heels, suits or Spanx.

Also, no pay… the one big drawback.

Blogging also is a fun way to experiment with new technology.

I love trying to keep up with the digital world.

I have a journalism degree from Utah State University and a master’s of writing from Johns Hopkins University.

My first story was published in the Salt Lake Tribune when I was about 10 years old.

I’ve written one way or another ever since.

Blogging is the greatest outlet for a writer, especially for one that has more ideas than time like I do.

I love writing about life and all the things that anchor me in my life — my family, relationships, values, and everything in between that matters to me.

I enjoy memoir writing and digging into my past for good story fodder.

 I never run out of interesting stories from my family life.

My family is full of wonderful rich characters who supply me with plenty of good material.

Thanks for stopping by.

I hope you’ll come back often, stay and read awhile.

  1. I’ve spent all afternoon reading your blogs. I’m so proud of you. I love you. I miss you.

  2. Laurie, you may remember me from past field hockey days! Denise and I were talking about our girls and she told me about your blog and how great it was…she was right…you draw me right in! I am one of your “following” ! Good luck with it and keeping Nikki out of the living room!
