About the Author

Laura Hotchkiss received her BA from the University of California, San Diego and set 5 school swimming records. Subsequently Laura pursued her MD from the Brown-Dartmouth Program in Medicine and eventually became Board Certified in Diagnostic Radiology. Ultimately, she served as an Officer in the USAF. She is now settled in the State of Washington with her husband Bruce.  The desire to write children’s books stemmed from raising her four children. Generosity, empathy, listening skills, perspective and faith are traits that can be difficult to teach. Laura found a connection to her children through stories that she would make up.  This became the basis for the Moral of the Stories. Why Not Walnut is the first story in the series published.  All the stories have morals, some deep and thoughtful, others just fun.
