PRAISE:

“Laura Rossi Totten has changed my life as a writer: when there are necessary and pressing tasks I hesitate to perform, Laura says “I’ll handle that” and she does. It’s amazing; it’s like always having the perfect combination of a fairy godmother and security guard at your side. From working with producers, agents, editors, copyeditors, marketing folks, and publicity teams, to handling complex calendar matters and finding the right-business-card-designer at the right time, Laura has helped me become a more productive, enthusiastic, and successful writer and speaker. My thanks to her are only equaled by my applause for her. She’s the best.”
