Meet the Author

A consummate expert at getting a job or gig, even in a down economy, Laura Dawn Lewis has landed over twenty-five positions or projects in the past 23-years. Throughout college it was not unusual for her to be working four jobs at once while attending university full-time.

Born in Rochester, New York in 1966 Laura is the eldest of two daughters. She spent her junior year in high school as a Rotary International exchange student in Brazil.

In 1995 she graduated from Central Washington University with a BS in Marketing. By 1996 her life began taking a new direction as after being fired for challenging the unethical practices of her boss, she chose to begin writing her first book. That book led to the formation of Couples Company in 1999, the online resource dedicated to keeping relationships together.

Her professional career began with The Washington Post Company where she served in a number of positions and later included CBS Radio Network, Los Angeles Business Journal and The Press Enterprise.

An accomplished writer and journalist, due to her focus on Middle East and political issues she generally publishes under her writing partner’s name. Together they've won several international awards for journalism, the most recent in 2008 for coverage of humanitarian issues in the Middle East.

Though politically conservative, she is a staunch supporter of human rights, constitutional rights and individual freedoms. The bulk of her philanthropic work exists to expose assaults on each and eliminate the fear created through xenophobia and misinformation.

Here latest projects include the four book series, Laid Off Now What, The Recession Edition and the Christian children’s book The Storybook Advent Calendar and Carols collection, co-created with Michael Brech, British musician and songwriter as a fundraiser for churches and non-profits.

Her first book was best-selling erotic series: Sensuality Volume One™: The Collection of Bedtime Stories for Adults™

Lewis resides in Los Angeles, California with her cat, Sinatra.
