At the age of five, Laura Fraser knew she was going to be a writer.
Laura published her first piece in the Jerusalem Post while volunteering on an Israeli kibbutz. Since then, she has become a New York Times best-selling memoirist and the author of four nonfiction books. She has contributed to publications ranging from the New York Times “Modern Love” column to O, The Oprah Magazine, Tricycle: The Buddhist Review, and Vogue. Much of her work focuses on women’s health, medicine, travel, social justice, personal essays, and food as a way into the hearts of other cultures.
A master of the craft, Laura has taught writing at Stanford University’s continuing education program, UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, and the Writers Grotto in San Francisco, where she is a longtime member. Through her company, Narrative Solutions, she develops clear and engaging content for an esteemed list of clients including Genentech and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. A lover of the written word, Laura has kept a list of all the books she’s ever read since she was 13.
