Running L Productions

Independent Publisher
Laura Hesse
Parksville, BC

Running L Productions is the fulfillment of a life long dream for Vancouver Island author, screenwriter and publicist, Laura Hesse, one that has been with her since she was 16. Hesse wrote her first novel, One Frosty Christmas, while recovering from major surgery in 2001. When the first print run sold out in three days, Laura knew she was right to follow her heart.


The company is celebrating its 10th year, having been established in 2003. While the company began as an independent book publisher and publicity company for such notable artists as Oprah O-List glass artist, Ted Jolda, celebrated equine artist, Joan Larson, its focus now is strictly on publishing.


Hesse's Holiday Series is a Walt Disney themed series of novels geared towards horse loving young adults and teens. One Frosty Christmas, The Great Pumpkin Ride, and A Filly Called Easter are Canadian bestsellers. All of these novels have placed in the top 50 on Amazon in their various holiday categories with A Filly Called Easter climbing to #5 in 2010. The original screenplays are currently under option to Select Services Films in LA.
