Long Bio:

Laurie Wright is a woman on a mission to improve the mental health and emotional welfare of children around the world, one book at a time. As an author and consultant, she has the innate ability to give children and adults alike a confidence boost.

During her tenure as a kindergarten teacher, Wright noticed students often exhibited learned helplessness. Parents struggled with finding the words to express emotional support or convince their children that they were capable. This time in the classroom served as the foundation in creating her first book, “I Can Handle It” in 2017. Driven by the desire to help eradicate childhood anxiety, Wright has added seven books under the Mindful Mantras series as well as accessories to help children build emotional intelligence.

In an industry where the average self-published book sells a few hundred copies annually, Wright sells several hundred daily and generates numerous positive reviews from parents, teachers and counsellors. Overall, she has independently sold over 100,000 books and earned Amazon bestseller status.

Born out of her passion for teaching and marketing, Wright also offers hands-on programs and consulting services for aspiring and struggling children’s book authors. Instead of winging it or feeling the pressure of figuring everything out along the way, she gives writers direction and a proven structure for success. Through courses like “Profitable Picture Books: How to Self-Publish a Picture Book,” she shares the blueprint for creating and selling children’s picture books in the competitive self-publishing industry. Wright has developed a solid reputation as a publishing strategist, giving authors the insight, systems and coaching to take their book projects to the next level. Her clients attribute their increased financial success to her commitment to forward-thinking marketing strategies and results.

Wright is currently working on the next books in The Mindful Mantras and her all new Courage Chronicles series. When she’s not crafting her next bestseller or helping authors do the same, Wright spends her spare time with her three children and husband.
