Fueled by her passions for fresh food and health and self care, Laurel published her first book Going Back for Seconds in 2014. It features healthy and delicious plant-based recipes that focus on pleasure and fun and less on diets or restrictions.
Laurel published her second book in 2017, Following Fear: How I Faced 30 Fears and Learned to Trust the Unknown. Following Fear is a memoir about how the curious events of the summer of 2013 inspired Laurel to stop following her bliss and start following her fear. This group of intimate short stories about facing 30 of her biggest fears shares the journey of learning to trust everything that happens—the wins, the heartbreaks, the embarrassments, the deepest disappointments—and to find safety in the unknown. Following Fear offers a fresh approach. Instead of encouraging readers to get rid of their fears and be fearless, it looks more at what happens when you are willing to take yourself to the edge, see what’s underneath the fears, and learn to love the experience of growing through your discomfort. It shares its unique message by telling 30 honest and vulnerable experiences of one woman who never expected to become the brave one. Get your copy of Following Fear today!
