The official version:
Laura is from a sleepy village in Bedfordshire, England. She likes Earl Grey tea, pugs, reading ALL the books she can get her hands on, dance parties and Aidan Turner. She is represented by Alice Williams at David Higham Associates.
The chatty version:
Hey, I’m Laura and I am twenty-three years old which is bonkers, because inside I’m 14 and still doodling ‘I HEART ORLANDO BLOOM’ in my notebooks.
I’ve loved writing ever since I was a kid. Seriously, I remember reading that J.K Rowling ‘wrote’ her first novel, Rabbit, at age 7 and thinking ‘I’ve got to catch up with her!’ I’ve been story-catching ever since. My forever dream is to be a writer. I’ve been lucky enough to write for a couple of awesome magazines, but my heart lies with fiction. Especially middle grade fiction.
I really really like books, making fun of movies, cats & laughing until I snort with my friends.
Other things I heart:
sunsets, reading by the fire, my dog, taking photos, Parks&Recreation, dairy milk chocolate bars, hugs with my mum, long walks, dancing, 30 Rock, fireworks, Christmas all year round, Tim Burton films, The Goldbergs, baking cakes, the rain (I’m British, it’s kind of mandatory), Gilmore Girls, London, visiting museums, seeing music live, Pushing Daisies, Peggy Carter, everything Adele has ever done/said, lie ins, Pitch Perfect, friends, tea, red lipstick, flicky eyeliner, J. K Rowling, pretty notebooks and candles.
