Seasoned Editor

Laura Carroll
Laura Carroll, M.S.

After over 20 years in business psychology and litigation communications, in 2007 I began focusing my editing skills on assisting writers, businesses and professionals in private and non-profit sectors.

I’ve managed the development of a variety of nonfiction books and eBooks. Beyond providing developmental and line editing services for nonfiction book manuscripts, my editing skills run the gamut. I have edited everything from website content, e-articles, presentations, business plans, fundraising materials, press releases, media materials, annual reports, research reports, campaign strategy documents, training and educational materials, and more.

I am dedicated to helping you achieve your communications goals!

Expert & Leading Voice on the Childfree Choice

My book, Families of Two (2000), received international recognition and paved the way for me to become a leading voice and expert on the childfree choice. With a Master’s in Psychology and Communications, for almost the last 20 years I have tracked and researched the childfree choice and those who make it. I have interviewed and talked with thousands who have made this choice. I founded and ran the popular blog, La Vie Childfree, which now lives here as a growing library of my childfree-related blog writings.

I am a contributor to Voluntary and Involuntary Childlessness: The Joys of Otherhood? (2018) published by Emerald Publishing in the UK. My current research includes the second edition of Families of Two,  a longitudinal study on childfree women, and…another surprise book in the works!

I have been been featured on ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS morning shows, a variety of radio talk shows, U.S. and Canadian public radio, print/digital media, including Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine, Women’s Health South Africa and UK to discuss childfree and related topics.
