Books by Laura Rudacille

Author Laura Rudacille turned her daily inspiration from working in her York, Pa., hair salon into four published books, each available for purchase online. Stories of humor ~ "Here's the Thing", romance ~ "Saltwater Cowboy" and "Late to Breakfast" and inspiration ~ "Invisible WOman". Her writing is insightful and motivational. Laura's candor and truth is what all "women can relate to at some point in their lives" says one Amazon reviewer.    Her book "Invisible Woman" provided "a gift of insight at a time when I had none," wrote another.

Relatable and Inspiring
Fiction for Women

Novelist and salon owner Laura Rudacille enjoys the fresh inspiration seated in her hydraulic chair every 30 minutes.

 

"Writing fiction is like naturally curly hair on a humid day — delightfully spirited and unpredictably wild. I love it!"

 

Years of work choreographing High School Musicals fostered her appreciation of character development, and attention to detail. Surviving family through laughter is the root of her first novel "Here's the Thing..."

 

Always on the lookout for her next muse, a vacation to Chincoteague VA to view the wild ponies inspired the tickle which inspired Laura's tender romantic series, Saltwater Cowboy, and Late to Breakfast.

 

Twenty plus years of working with women of varied ages opened Laura's eyes to the prize waiting at sixty, at seventy, and far beyond. With a grand sense of humor leading the way, a spark ignited and became the inspirational celebration of friendship, Invisible Woman.

 

For Laura writing began as a fun venture but revealed a thrilling new passion.

 

"I never thought I'd be a hairstylist who'd written a book, but now I dream of becoming a novelist who used to cut hair!"
