Author and freelance writer Laure Latham was born in the South Pacific, raised in Thailand, and worked as a tax attorney in Europe, but she developed a passion for the written word and began to write feature articles and book reviews on environment, family, and travel topics. Today she is a "Green Parenting Expert" for the San Francisco Examiner and regularly contributes to SFKids.org and GreenMoms.com. She has hiked and camped throughout California and now lives in Pacifica, California, with her husband and two daughters.
