Writing is a small business developed and nurtured by Laurie Esposito
Harley. Laurie was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. As a child,
she and her sister played games with words - writing stories together
and making books as gifts. In junior high and high school, Laurie
wrote poetry to express herself. In high school, she discovered
how deeply her love of writing ran. She began her first novel and
determined her career path: writing, of course.

she wanted more freedom and creativity. She majored in Professional
Writing & Editing with a concentration in creative writing and
minored in Psychology (of all things).
