About Moi

Me again
I am a freelance writer and graphic designer in Central Florida. Please check out my portfolio at www.laurabwilliamsdesigns.

I have always loved to read and write and draw.  I wrote and illustrated my first book when I was 6 about a princess and her mean father, the King. It wasn’t much a story, the plot was predictable and the illustrations childlike. I was 6. As I grew up I continued to write stories and draw. As the minivan filled up I found that there was less space in my head for writing and drawing so I used my creativity in different ways, like trying to figure out how to get peanut butter off a very mad cat. When I was 40, I went back to college and once again that space opened up. I could write. I concentrated on literature and writing courses and I ran a creative writing group.

Then life got in the way, again. Now that space is opening up, again. I write, I draw and I create. Of course, now I get paid to do it!

Neil Gaiman Quote 1

I think the Big Dude in the sky knew exactly what I needed at this moment in my life. So, I’ll just keep writing and drawing and trying to figure out the easiest way to get peanut butter off a mad cat.

  1. Laura, thank you for stopping by my blog and deciding to follow it, I appreciate your time, I don’t know which of my posts struck your interest, but I do hope that my future posting continue to draw you in. Please take care, and have a great day. — Bill

    • One of the reasons that I followed you is that I am going through a similar situation. I am in the process of being diagnosed with COPD after a 7 day hospital stay and various illnesses. I was interested in your progress and how you are managing through exercise and therapy. Keep up the good work.
