Laurie Cooper launched her own online business, Pub-Craft, in October 2013. Since then, Laurie and her team of publicists and assistants have helped over 100 clients to New York Times and USA Today bestseller status. Laurie began working in the industry under the guidance of New York Times Bestselling Author Opal Carew, and quickly transitioned from an independent public-relations consultant to a full-time business owner and creative project manager. Now, Laurie and her team deliver promotion management, consulting, virtual assistance, and more, with the goal of “Giving you more time to write!”.
While she works with authors from around the world, Laurie calls Ottawa, Ontario her home. She loves to travel whenever she can escape her cluttered desk – even if it’s just a trip to the cottage. In between work and travel, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, scrapbooking, reading, downing whole pots of coffee, and plotting to rule the world, or dancing under the moon (whichever is more convenient at the time). She graduated from Carleton University in 2012 with combined High Honours in Communication studies and Global Politics, Concentration in Image, Politics and Persuasion, and a Minor in Law. Laurie then returned to school in 2016, and graduated from Algonquin College with a Graduate Certificate in Marketing Management.
