Laura King Edwards writes.

Since before starting kindergarten, Laura has written and illustrated stories. After almost 30 years, she’s penned countless stories, poems, feature articles and blog posts. “Run to the Light,” a memoir about her sister’s brave battle against Batten disease, is her first book. A passionate advocate for the rare disease community, Laura co-founded a non-profit organization, Taylor’s Tale, at age 24.

Born and raised in Charlotte, Laura earned an English degree with a creative writing minor from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A retired soccer player turned avid runner, she’s happiest under a deep blue sky and wants to hike in every national park. Though she loves to travel, she always finds her way home.
