After graduating from Dartmouth College, Laura worked as a speechwriter in the final two years of the Reagan Administration at the White House, the Department of Transportation and the Department of Education. She went on to graduate from the University of Virginia School of Law, where she was Notes Editor of the Law Review. She served as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Ralph K.

In Power to the People, Ingraham focuses on what she calls the "pornification" of America. She discusses issues such as traditional family values, education, and American patriotism. Power to the People stresses the importance of getting involved in the culture:
"The main thread that runs through these topics I cover in the book is civic involvement and civic virtue. Get in the game. Start a blog, report on what is happening at your local PTA. If you are a parent, and you are disgusted at what you see on your kid's computer screen, do something. Track where your kids go on the Internet. Tell your kids that you are going to review where they are on the Internet. Be a parental filter. Learn about threats that face America - from within and out. Education is the first line of defense."
Laura's latest venture The Obama Diaries: Defeating Obama, Saving America is part fact, part fiction, all fun. Major media outlets love to describe the president as "no drama Obama," but The Obama Diaries tells a different tale. Through these "diary entries," readers will see past the carefully constructed Obama facade to the administration’s true plans to "remake America."
