Our campaign isn't run by a publishing house or outside company. Rather, we are a small team of students and young professionals who simply believe in the success of this book. So much so that we have taken on the challenge of doing everything ourselves, from writing to illustrating to publishing to marketing. It's hard work, but we've never looked back.
Laura wrote Sophie Votes Republican because she wanted to provide conservative families a fun way to introduce their children to the importance of voting. Laura grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, and she now resides in Newport Beach, California. Laura loves writing, particularly when that writing is meant to amuse. Sophie Votes Republican is her first children's book. Laura graduated from Rice University with a degree in Chemical Engineering in 2005 and from Berkeley Law in 2011. The protagonist of the book, Sophie, is actually named after Laura's best friend from Berkeley Law, Sophie Calderon. We made sure to make Sophie the squirrel just as cute and upbeat as the real Sophie!
