About the Author
Born and raised in steel city of Sheffield in the North of the UK, Laura now lives in the wilds of the Peak District - a place of relative tranquility away from city life.
With a passion for the written word and a deep abiding love of reading, it took many years for Laura to realise that writing is what she was born to do. Although an avid story teller in her teens, work and then family life (two daughters, now grown) pulled her away from her dream of writing a novel. It wasn’t until her move to the country in 2015 and taking a voluntary redundancy from a busy job that she rekindled her love of writing.
With one published novel under her belt, Laura is working on several different ideas for the second and subsequent books.
