The Reluctant Author Press Kit
As a teen growing up in an impoverished dysfunctional home environment, Laurine Schaffer realizes that she must be pragmatic and pursue a sustainable professional career path.
Although Laurine ultimately forges a successful vocation as a college professor, at age fifty-seven she admits she is not being true to herself, or to her lifelong aspiration to write the story of her German Lutheran ancestors who fled Russia in 1892. Following an epiphany in an abandoned family cemetery on the original ancestral homestead in western Canada, Laurine begins to write. As one family history book follows another and another and yet another, her writing becomes a catalyst for a personal healing journey.
