Hi, I’m Laura.

I'm an author of two books, the founder of The Luckiest Club, the mom of one amazing kid and a forever student.

My second book, Push Off From Here, will be released in March 2023 and is available for preorder now!

I write a lot about addiction, sobriety, relationships, midlife, mothering, and change. My blog here has many years' worth of posts chronicling my years getting sober and learning how to live but I don't post there often anymore. Any musing-type writing I do now goes into my newsletter. Subscribe here.

‍Most of my time now is focused on writing the next book, supporting The Luckiest Club, a sobriety support community I founded in 2020, and trying to keep my daughter from getting older. If you need help getting sober or thriving in sobriety, it's a pretty great place to be. Check us out.
