Laura Paquet

Laura Byrne Paquet’s first encounter with the written word was not auspicious: her birth announcement appeared in the local newspaper classifieds under the heading “Livestock for Sale.” Despite that, she became a writer. She’s written about destinations around the world for more than 80 publications, including DreamScapes and The Ottawa Citizen. Laura has also written or co-authored 13 books, including Wanderlust: A Social History of Travel and Secret Ottawa.
