About Me – Laura Bock: Writer, Artist, Photographer

Edited & revised 6/16/17


Life through the eyes of a (formerly) inadequate fat girl.

I live my life with no apologies, no regrets, and no fear.

I have taken the leap of faith many times over in my life, which explains my sometimes bruised and wounded wings.

I’m an old school punk, Goth, and alterna-chick that prefers wearing Doc Martens over a pair of heels. 

Clothing size tags mean nothing to me – I have a sense of style all my own and I rock it 110%. Every. Single. Day.

I am the fat girl version of Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw. Yes, I once had a Mr. Big.

I’ve recently learned to de-clutter and simplify so I can pursue the life I’ve wanted for years.

My passions are writingtravel, and art/photography.

In the Muggle world, I kick ass at being an Incredibly Awesome Jane of all Trades.

I’m waiting for The Doctor to show up in his TARDIS and take me awaybritish-at-heart-sherlock-doctor-who-harry-potter

My two cats are my four-legged children and mean the world to me.

I love to cook and bake – I’m Betty fuckin’ Crocker, bitches.

Wine is my poison – along with a good vodka.

I still believe in fairies, unicorns, dragons, and magic.

Come to think of it, I’m still waiting for my letter to Hogwarts.

Deep down inside, underneath my badass exterior, I believe that true love exists.

The stories I write about are true and the names have been changed to protect the innocent (and not so innocent!)

The truth is truly stranger than fiction!
