Laura Greaves believes dogs are a gift we don’t deserve. She is passionate about the transformative power of animal-assisted therapy and its potential impact on the lives of children in foster care.


Laura is the award-winning author of eight non-fiction books about dogs, as well as three novels. Her books have been published in seven countries, including the United Kingdom, Mexico and Russia, and she has twice won the Dog Writers Association of America’s prestigious Rio Award.


She is the Media and Communications Manager for the national charity Assistance Dogs Australia, as well as a PhD (English) candidate at the University of Newcastle.


Laura lives in the NSW Blue Mountains with her husband, three children – including two foster children - and a menagerie of pets, including two incorrigible dogs.
