Laurie Gough – Editor

As an award-winning author of three memoirs and seasoned travel writer, I'm a devoted editor with over 20 years experience helping authors.


Many memoir writers don't trust that their writing is interesting enough for a wide audience. But everyone's story is unique and worthy of writing if it's told with original fresh details. I can help you dig out those details so your writing comes alive. I edit all types of memoir including travel memoir and love working with new writers!
