About Me

Hello! I'm Laura Fox.

Whenever I find a teacher I'm particularly drawn to, I google up their name with the word "author." Reading is my all-time favorite way to absorb new knowledge. There's something magical about the way words on the page work their way into my consciousness, come to life in my body, and then manifest in the world in often surprising ways so that when I read the words again, I see something new and different.Laura Fox in pink glasses

I enjoy learning from videos too, but there is something so sacred and personal about curling up with a book on a silent evening with a cup of chamomile tea -- it opens me up in a way that no other learning modality does.

I’ve been in love with the written word for as long as I can remember. I learned to read by watching my mom teach my older sister when I was three, and I began writing down my own stories not long after I learned to use a pencil.

At some early point in my childhood, I formed the belief that people couldn’t understand me when I tried to speak. So I was silent most of the time.

One or two of my teachers pointed out that something might be wrong, but most were grateful that I wasn’t causing trouble and even praised me for being so good. On a particularly rowdy day, my sixth-grade teacher shouted over the mayhem, “Why can’t everyone be like Laura!” I stood up and silently threw my chair.

And then one day I got so upset about something I wrote a letter to my parents. To my surprise, they understood what I had written. They were moved, and they did something to fix the situation. That’s how writing became my superpower.

I kept working on my writing skills in private, knowing that this would be my key to connecting with the world outside of myself. I felt so connected to authors when I read their books, and I wanted to give that back. I also worked at becoming conversational because that’s an important skill too.

I had several short stories published and made a living for a few years writing resumes for people, then I branched out into other types of freelancing.

I stumbled upon ghostwriting when a client asked for help with a book she was writing. What she sent me was a pile of notes that she’d organized under chapter headings. I asked, “Do you want me to just… write this?”

She said, “Yes!”

And a beautiful collaboration ensued. Since then, I've collaborated with two authors to complete the books they had always dreamed of writing, and I've ghostwritten articles for an international political figure who champions human rights across the globe.

I’ve heard some ghostwriters say they don’t like it when their authors get involved in the writing process, but for me, it has to be a collaboration. With some of my authors, I think of my role more as a writing coach or writing partner than ghostwriter. To share my passion for the written word with wise teachers who have valuable insights to share with the world, watching them experience the power of finding their voice on the page is just extremely… gratifying.

If you potentially have a book in you and you would like to discuss it, let's have a conversation!


Pick some time in my calendar



I live in rural Washington State with my husband and any number of dogs, cats, chickens, and goats.


My educational & professional background:

I hold a Master of Arts degree in Social Ecology and Anthropology and a Bachelor of Arts in Sustainable Community Development from Prescott College. I also studied the Enneagram at Conscious Living Center.

I am a certified Book Editor (IAP Career College) and a member of the Association of Ghostwriters.

In my own work, I write about compassion, solitude, intercession, meditation, contemplation, connection to nature, and dream interpretation. I draw from mainline Christian traditions and from the symbolism of astrology the Tarot, and the Enneagram. I also spent a few years living in an experimental community (Arcosanti, Arizona) and wrote my MA thesis on research I conducted with former community members who brought what they learned back to the mainstream world. If you're looking for content on any of the above topics, I would love to hear from you!
