      “Journey of Fairytales is an enchanting book of Phantasmagorical childhood adventures that touch on themes of love, hope, and enlightenment."

  Author Laura Botsford‘s runs wild in this free-wheeling book that will be a delight to share with children of all ages."

   ~ Anatole Burkin, Retired Editor for Taunton Press

     Journey of Fairy Tales is a Disneyesque - Never Ending Story adventure that sparks the beginning of storytelling on Earth. In the uplifting tale of the Tipleah Tree; the Tree of Leaves holds all the stories ever to be written until one unimaginative day they are stolen by the foreboding negative Harmies of Namerus and locked behind a swirling wall of dismal thought-forms.

   Kingston and Isla lost their parents in the invasion of the Angerdahs and set off on a journey to rescue them and the Leaves ever to be written in storybooks. They embark on a challenging adventure to the Linkalee Alignment where only through being in tune with their natural laws of attraction, magical gadgets, and a willingness to work together can they rescue the Leaves and bring their parents' home. Where there is light there can be no darkness.

Opening excerpt from the first chapter of Journey of Fairy Tales

  Aquarium Funk

                    DECEMBER 2015

        Aquarium Funk is an innovative compendium of cool with wings, hip with the hap of old school meets break-out contemporary jazz fusions of capriccio tuneful charm.

     Aquarium Funk is born out of a fusion of funk and jazz with a Latin feel and is an eclectic soup of Soul genres that defies gravity and shouts to the world something fresh and truly swellegant.

 Review by Simon Reich

     Laura Botsford is an artist. And I don’t just mean in the musical sense. Visual arts are also a creative outlet for her. Collages seem to be a specialty of hers and when it comes to music, this also seems to be her strength, musical collages, or as Laura calls them ... “coalescing the vapors”.

"For what is life if not to find

joy in doing the things you love and the people one loves

doing them with?" 

                   ~  laura botsford

Poet Streets

     Poet Streets embraces a romantic theme of two lovers who are reunited after a separation that left them empty. There is magic in the night as the city that once tore them apart now brings them back together. Classical/Ambiance and Jazz/Rock blend straight from the tap with all subsuming emotions as we trace their heart lines in notes that are at once soul searching, and meshed inevitably in destiny.
