Sequim author releases book

Laurie Davies of Sequim has written and published “Are Unicorns Real?”, a book in dedication to her granddaughter Adina.

Many conversations came about with the question “Are unicorns real?” In 2018, Davies decided to write a children’s book about the love of unicorns, using actual questions and dialogue from her conversations from — and dedicate it to — her granddaughter.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, the book can be purchased at Swains General Store in Port Angeles, and online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

A Sequim native who attended local schools and Peninsula College, Davies is a board member for the Clallam County Fair and North Olympic History Center, and a Clallam County 4-H leader. She’s married to Richard (Bud) Davies, a retired Sequim dentist.

Davies has two children: Sarah, who lives in Alaska, and Mark, who lives in Florida.
