About Me

Hi! I’m Laura Roberts, and I’m a San Diego-based freelance writer and editor for hire. Since 2007, I’ve worked for lots of amazing companies, writing everything from articles and interviews to reviews and profiles of hotels, points of interest and cities around the world, as well as editing the works of thousands of indie authors.

My work has been featured on sites like Expedia, MapQuest, Not For Tourists and Travel + Leisure. I’ve also contributed to popular writing sites like Funds For Writers and Writers Weekly, and have even written custom content for businesses like the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts, Hips & Curves Lingerie and the Yellow Pages.

What sets me apart?

  • I hold a joint degree in Creative Writing and English Literature, because I love to read and write great stories.
  • I’ve lived in many different cities in the U.S. and Canada, so I’ve got lots of connections – as well as insider knowledge.
  • I edit a literary magazine that publishes new content daily, which keeps me on my toes in both the fiction and nonfiction spheres.
  • I learned everything I needed to know about life from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: “Life moves pretty fast; if you don’t stop to look around once in a while, you could miss it.” And if you ever get the chance to borrow a friend’s 1961 Ferrari GT California, you should definitely do it.
