Laura Davis is the author of The Burning Light of Two Stars,* the story of her loving yet tumultuous relationship with her mother, and six other non-fiction books. Her first books, The Courage to Heal and The Courage to Heal Workbook, paved the way for hundreds of thousands of women and men to heal from the trauma of sexual abuse. Becoming the Parent You Want to Be, a rich resource guide co-authored with parenting expert Janis Keyser, helped parents develop a vision for the families they want to create. I Thought We'd Never Speak Again: The Road from Estrangement to Reconciliation taught the skills of reconciliation and peace building, one relationship at a time. Laura’s groundbreaking books have been translated into 12 languages and sold two million copies.
In addition to writing books that inspire, the work of Laura’s heart is to teach. For more than twenty years, she’s helped people find their voices, tell their stories, and hone their craft. Laura loves creating supportive, intimate writing communities online, in person, and internationally. She leads international trips combining writing, cultural learning and adventure around the world to destinations like Vietnam, Bali, Greece, Scotland, and Tuscany.
