I had an Article Published!

Recently, an author/e-friend of mine asked if I would be willing to contribute a short article to an online newsletter she publishes.  "Talking Story" is the e-newsletter of authors, Joyce Moyer Hostetter and Carol Baldwin that, "discusses books for children and the process of writing, publishing and speaking for children."  I of course said yes (I mean how cool!).  I have to admit I struggled with the tight word limit and had several drafts of the article. My article is in the August Issue which focuses on Using Humor in the Classroom.  I hope you check it out!


  1. Laura, you proved yourself a professional writer by struggling with the word count and following the guidelines! That is so hard to do.

    And I did give you a really strict word count.

    Thanks for the link! Love working with you!

  2. Laura,
    We are proud and pleased to include you in this issue. Joyce told me a lot about your blog...I guess I'll have to check out your book reviews now. I'm impressed with your reading list!
    Thanks for linking to us. Carol Baldwin

  3. Thank you both for having me, I would love to do it again sometime if you ever want me to!

  4. Congratulations! I enjoyed reading your article.
