Laurie Hunter-Gilbert, the mother of two sons, Frederick Jr. and Charles is the Director of the Family Planning Center, a department within Kaleida Health in Buffalo, New York. Hey Mom and Daddy..... I did it!

Background Information

A Buffalo, New York native, Laurie Hunter-Gilbert's passion for writing started in the 5th grade. This was when one of her many dreams was fulfilled. Putting pen to paper she wrote an Easter play that was performed by her classmates at the school she attended. She was hooked. Writing many books of poetry in high school, she became discouraged when publishing companies rejected her work. Then she met Nikki Giovanni, a poet who greatly influenced her love for poetry and writing. Ms. Giovanni, being the downhome lady that she is, took the time to talk to Laurie and told her how she self published her first book because publishers rejected her work also. That conversation stayed with Laurie throughout the years.

Birth Place
Buffalo, NY 
Additional Information

At 46, Laurie has fulfilled another dream. She has written her first book. Joining Prolific Writers Network, an online writers group, Laurie started working on her skills to help her become a published writer. With the encouragement and enthusiasm given to her by the many writers online, both published and not yet published, "I Just Want To Testify" was created. Picked up by Sadorian Publications of Durham, North Carolina "....Testify" will be released this year.
