Born, raised, and educated in Lincoln, Nebraska USA, author-historian Laurel A. Rockefeller educates while she entertains, encouraging readers to think about current events and history in a completely new way. Using exhaustive and comprehensive research across dozens of academic disciplines, Laurel's stories come alive so vividly it is easy to forget you are learning something new.
Can it be any wonder that secondary school teacher Lorraine Carey calls Laurel's "Legendary Women of World History Series, "...a gold mine for educators that want an all inclusive history unit?" Debb LaVoie agrees, "Laurel A. Rockefeller weaves a wonderful story." Rabid Reader Reviews adds, "I really enjoy Laurel Rockefeller’s work and believe that she’ll be responsible for introducing many young women to historical figures they will admire."
As a low vision author who lost most of her sight to a traumatic brain injury while in secondary school, Laurel is passionate about high quality audio books. London-born British actor and voice actor Richard Mann narrates Laurel's audio book editions with superb performances complimentary to and enhancing Laurel's powerful and vibrant creative non-fiction storytelling.
