Laurie Asher joined the Guild in 2015. Shortly after joining, she agreed to fill the vacant Secretary position on the Board. Since then, she has been reelected, most recently in 2018 to serve a two-year term from 2019-2020.

Laurie writes children's books (ages 7-10). She has completed one manuscript and is currently working on a second (for young girls, ages 10-15).

She is also working on a book that takes a humorous look at an upscale, senior care facility. As one of the recent winners of the Memoir Showcase, sponsored by San Diego Writers, Ink, her work was performed on stage.

Several of her stories have been published in the Guild's Anthology, as well as a poetry piece in The Stories Start Here Anthology.
