Born in Rochester, New York, Laura Dawn Lewis is the eldest of two and grew up on the West Coast of the United States. She attended high school in Oregon and Brazil before graduating from Central Washington University with a BS in Marketing. She has also spent time in England and Saudi Arabia.
In 1989 she began working for the Washington Post's The Herald in Everett, Washington, first in circulation and later in advertising where she discovered her talents in art, photography and writing before leaving in 1995.
After spending a year in radio at KZOK in Seattle, in 1996 she moved to Los Angeles and began working for the Los Angeles Business Journal in advertising.
Concurrently she began reporting as a freelance writer on issues dealing with the emerging technology of the Internet for other publications, whilst completing her first two short story collections: Sensuality Volume One and Sensuality Volume Two.
Leaving the business journal in 1999, Lewis founded Couples Company, based upon the Eight Stages of Intimacy she identified after realizing that the majority of relationships break up due to a lack of attention in the areas of spiritual, emotional and intellectual intimacy. Covering the expected, advice on love, romance, dating and marriage, she discovered she enjoyed tackling the controversial subjects of faith, politics and finance. By February 2011 the site was drawing nearly 600,000 unique visitors a month.
It was during this time she completed her first non-fiction book: Laid Off, Now What?!?: Surviving Unemployment. In 2010 she updated this book dividing it into four books covering the psychological, financial and job seeking strategies with an emphasis on the changes in tactics and tools for the Great Recession. Laid Off Now What?!? Thriving Financially through Unemployment was released in paperback in May of 2010.
In 2008 whilst in England she joined forces with musician, lyricist and composer Michael Brech to pursue an idea she'd been thinking about since 2002. This idea is the Storybook Advent Calendar and Carols collection. The book was published in paperback in 2010.
In 2011 Lewis merged Couples Company with two other companies. The web property will be re-launching with a whole new direction and look the summer of 2011.
She currently resides in Los Angeles California with her cat, Sinatra.
