KNAU Arizona (NPR affiliate) review of Writing Begins with the Breath (5/8/15)

“Laraine Herring takes you on a journey toward wholeness as a writer.
Anyone who writes—or wants to—will find this book as essential and inspiring as breath.”

        —Gayle Brandeis, author of Fruitflesh: Seeds of Inspiration for Women Who Write

“A worthwhile and motivating read for all writers. Those who enjoy Julia Cameron’s (The Artist’s Way) holistic approach should similarly like Herring’s work.”

        —Library Journal

“The practice is exquisitely clear: breathe and write. This book is an excellent guide and catalyst for that deep work, and a wise companion for the writer’s journey.”

        —SARK, author and artist of Fabulous Friendship Festival

“Practical, accessible, and motivational.”

        —The Washington Post
