By Laura E. Sanchez
Ten - year old Elena, a wannabe fashion designer, has been separated from her mother for the past five years, living in Guadalajara with her grandmother --- and decides to unite her family in Los Angeles. The only thing standing in her way is the 2000 mile bus trip across Mexico, robbers with machetes, trigger happy Federales; her mother’s visa approval hanging in the balance of a cunning immigration officer.
Her dream for a better life involves a furry white puppy – Princess Maria, her t-shirt designs, a grandmother diagnosed with heart disease, a 13 year old boy desperate to return to the US after his parents die ---- and a baby goat.

“Every Girl deserves her own Queen-dom.”
Laura Sanchez rescued her mom from a life of poverty and abuse.
She fulfilled a promise to her mother and built her a beautiful home.
Princess Maria and the Adventures of Elena comes from deep within
“At the heart of my story is a little girl, with few options – who does the unthinkable,
travels alone, cross – country - to find a cure for her grandma’s heart disease.”
Laura has studied with John Truby – story telling, Steve Kaplan – comedy,
Michael Hauge – story. And taken classes in Directing, Songwriting at UCLA Extension.
“My earliest studies of film & writing occurred when my mother and I were cracking up, reeling in laughter, unable to leave the big box TV to get a snack, fused to the couch -- by the antics of Chico, Harpo and Groucho. Our favorite was ‘A Day at the Races’, the Marx brother comedy.”
“I hope that my novel empowers millions of girls – all around the world – to take charge of their destiny.”
