Hi! I’m Laurel-Ann, and this is my story:

I began my journalism career as an intern at the South Bend Tribune while attending the University of Notre Dame and earning a degree in American Studies/Journalism. After graduating, I joined the staff of the Palm Beach Post-Times as a general assignment reporter.

With the idea of practicing law and writing concurrently, I went to law school at Emory University and then joined a large law firm. I soon discovered that my plan was not going to work, unless I gave up sleeping entirely. So I decided to return to journalism full time as a freelance writer.

I initially concentrated on law and business and then expanded to include a variety of subjects. Alongside that, I started a content creation business.

In 2012, I wrote a fiction book for adolescent girls called Best Friend Thief.  That was followed by Wicked Atlanta, an adult history book, published in 2014.
