August McLaughlin is a health and sexuality writer host and creator of Girl Boner®. Her work appears in Cosmopolitan, DAME Magazine, the Huffington Post, LIVESTRONG.com and more. Kirkus Reviews called her first novel, In Her Shadow, “an engaging story with an inventive structure and an intriguing focus on body-image issues.” Each week on Girl Boner® Radio, she interviews relationship experts, celebrity entertainers and more, exploring women’s lives and sexuality.
In 2016, she attended the United State of Women conference convened by the White House as a nominated change maker, spoke about surviving an eating disorder at a TEDx Women event in Beverly Hills (see the video here), and learned a heck of a lot about life, love and herself. Known for melding personal passion, artistry and activism, August uses her skills as a public speaker and journalist to inspire women to embrace their bodies and selves, making way for fuller, more authentic lives. Her first Girl Boner book will be released by Amberjack Publishing in 2018.
