Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Laura Lieff grew up in the music business. Her family founded and operated a chain of record stores in Florida for 50 years and music has always been a significant part of her life. Laura moved to Colorado in 2002 to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she earned her BA in English.
At the age of 23, she became a professional writer when she moved to Denver and began working for the Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle. After seven years, she resigned from the Chronicle and moved to the Vail Valley where she runs her own business, Lieff Ink, which offers freelance writing, editing, and PR for a variety of people and companies. In addition to working diligently for her Lieff Ink clients, Laura is a writing tutor and College Essay Consultant. On Friday nights, she hosts a radio show called Bite the Bullet on 107.9 Radio Free Minturn.
In February 2021, Laura published her first book called Wookie Is Not His Real Name which illuminates how the life-altering circumstances of one professional athlete were met with heart and humor. By providing a comprehensive look into snowboard culture through the eyes of a local legend and his community, the biography also explores how becoming a father is the ultimate achievement.
