Laura W. Eckroat's Life of Bud

My name is Laura W. Eckroat, I currently live in Fort Worth, TX with my husband and 18 year old daughter, Ashley. I have two dogs- Mabel, our couch potato beagle; and Muffin, our very silly rescue dog— which no one seems to know what she is! I’m originally from Whiting, IN and have lived in Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts and now Texas. In my former life I was a Human Resources Manager, General Manager for an educational toy store, and an elementary school teacher. I now work for the YMCA and am focusing on writing.

My website is under construction – I can be reached at
You can find me on FB at

The Life of Bud

This is the story of life and how important we all are and how hard it is to let go in the end. The story follows Bud, who starts out in life as a tiny bud—but grows into a beautiful, vibrant leaf on the Mighty Oak.

He could see the entire town, and he watched in amazement all the plants coming to life – flowers blooming, vines winding, grass growing.

A Simpler Time

Oversaturated with the latest video games and iPhone apps, does anyone slow down to remember A Simpler Time. Join A.J. as she discovers a summer of fun with her mom, finding animals in the clouds, and a trek to find the perfect four-leaf clover!

"Mom, I’m bored!”
A.J.’s mom told her to eat her breakfast and after breakfast they would start their great summer adventure. Their adventure to … a simpler time

You can purchase The Life of Bud and A Simpler Time from Amazon.

Laura is giving away TWO books; The Life of Bud AND A Simpler Time. To be entered in the book giveaway, leave a comment. You can enter the book giveaway twice--once on each spotlight post.
