Books by Laura Rudacille


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!"


Managing life through laughter is the heart of her first novel "Here's the Thing..."  (think Big Fat Greek Wedding meets Somethings Gotta Give) This multi-generational thrill ride delivers laugh out loud antics with a side of family devotion.


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


Decades of working with women of varied ages opened Laura's eyes to the prize waiting at sixty, at seventy, and far beyond. This spark ignited and became the inspirational celebration of friendship, Invisible Woman.


What began 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!" LR
