About the author:
Laura Fulton is a full time writer, mother, wife and PTA dodger. The former staff writer for Abu Dhabi Week magazine left her native USA for the United Arab Emirates in 2002 where she inexplicably convinced the tallest, best looking Australian guy at the bar to marry her. She has recently moved to a small town near Melbourne where she spends her time ironing, writing and trying to convince the PTA president that she's much too busy to bake pastries for the next school fundraiser.
Before turning to full-time journalism, Laura taught high school English in Dallas, Texas and at an international in Abu Dhabi. While on maternity leave with her first child, she took on her first freelance job, finally giving her masters degree in writing a work out.
Laura's forthcoming project One Moment in Time is a collection of firsthand accounts of the lives of grandmothers from around the world, stories that show how - more often than not - the experiences of women transcend time, place, language, culture and religion. Laura is also working on a novel scheduled for completion in 2013.
She is still astounded that she's married with children and thinks she was a much better mother before she had kids.
Naked in the Driveway
Memoirs of a Motherhood Gone Wrong
Do you know the fastest way to cool down eight chicken nuggets at the same time? If you said, 'wedge them into the air conditioning vents of your car', then you're sure to find a mom you can relate to in Naked in the Driveway. Find out how one unlikely mother has seized the teachable moment in just about every Disney movie ever made, why you should always check your kids' shoes to see what they've stepped in and why some days it's just about impossible to keep them from running around the front yard wearing nothing but a smile.
Naked in the Driveway is partly a collection of columns that appeared in Abu Dhabi Week magazine during 2011. It also includes harrowing accounts of giving birth, singehandedly travelling around the world with two small kids, snagging a really cute Australian guy and surviving the childhood club of her own invention called The Bob Whites. It also provides other useful information for parents and parents-to-be including 100 Things to Say to a Woman in Labour Other Than "Just Breathe", how to conduct a successful tequila night and why Barbie is a whore.
