Laura’s latest book, Sweeter than Silence (2022) is now available for pre-order.
As a ghostwriter, Laura’s specialization lies in narrative non-fiction (making self-help books wildly entertaining to read). Laura ghostwrote Neverboss (2018) on behalf of her father, Kevin Crenshaw. She has three more ghostwriting books underway, Failure for Breakfast and Customer Superheroes with Kevin Crenshaw, and Sugarproof Daddy with Jeremiah Webb, respectively. She enjoys giving great thinkers a voice.
Laura also writes fantasy for pleasure and ongoing skill growth. She looks forward to releasing her fiction debut, Written in Our Bones.

More About Laura
Before founding Mythulu, Laura worked as a wilderness therapy trail guide for the Anasazi Foundation for two years. She hiked in both summer deserts and winter snowstorms. She was a certified Wilderness First Responder for 5 years through NOLS. These experiences in the desert assisting at-risk youth and young adults through both medical and personal crises have left a permanent impact on her.
Although long-haul outdoor adventures have been back-burnered to vacation hobby status, she enjoys helping individuals navigate challenges with courage and pursue their inner greatness whenever the opportunity arises.
Laura is an advocate for identity discovery issues including LGBTQIA+, mental health, ED recovery, and antifragility — as well as social issues like local hunger relief and environmental health. She enjoys reading razor-sharp non-fiction as much as innovative fiction. Her current hobbies include scuba diving with her husband, backpacking, leviwand fire flow, and photography.
