Press & Praise
In this video I share a little bit about myself, my books and how listening to my inner voice helped navigate my path from bullied child, to South Beach bartender to bestseller to Ambassador of Love!
"Laura, I admire what you have done and are doing. Good Luck" ~ Warren Buffet
After seeing Mr Buffet say that LOVE is the greatest gift we can give our children, I sent him my first two books. He sent me a lovely letter, sharing he had a bout with Alopecia when his father passed. My big take-away from our correspondence -- he replies to every letter he receives and promptly!
This is one of my favorite press highlights, as this paper didn’t have a separate children’s bestsellers list. In The Patriot Ledger (South Shore of Boston), I Love You More was listed at #6 and the only children's book on the list, along with authors Dan Brown, Mitch Albom and others! I had presented at a few local schools, after which parents and teachers headed out to the local stores to purchase copies.

It was a big thrill to be on the New York Times Bestsellers List. I Love You More reached #10 twice and made it's way to #7 so far! We’re still generating the conversation of love around the world.... stay tuned!

Laura's not the only champion for the power of love. Warren Buffet recently said in an interview with Yahoo! News:
"There is no power on earth like unconditional love. And I think that if you offered that to your child, I mean, you're 90 percent of the way home...And I would say that every parent out there that can extend that to their child at an early age, it's going to make for a better human being."
In a lovely letter to Laura Duksta, Warren Buffet said:
"Laura, I admire what you have done and are doing. Good Luck"
