We wrapped up 2012 by talking to Laura Fraser, a writer and life-long bibliophile (she has kept a running list of all the books she’s ever read since she was 13!). Laura gave us a fascinating glimpse into a full-time writer’s life, including her own process in transforming difficult life events into page-turning memoirs. She also shared some of her extensive knowledge of the craft of writing, from what makes a good story to why a daily writing practice is so essential. Thanks Laura for such a fun and inspiring interview!
Laura Fraser is a San Francisco-based journalist and writing mentor whose latest book, All Over the Map, is a travel memoir and sequel to her 2001 New York Times bestseller, An Italian Affair. Laura’s first book, an exposé of the diet industry, was Losing It.
