Meet Laura

Hi everyone, I'm Laura.

You'll find me in the Westminster bubble during the week, promoting the work of Parliament, and seaside dwelling at the weekend, navigating my children's social lives! When I'm not at princess parties or soft play, I'll have my nose in a book, drinking endless cups of coffee at my home in Essex, UK.

I've turned my passion for reading to writing, publishing my first children's picture book, 'I'm Going to Have a Sister', in December 2023. The book won the 2023 Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards, judged by UK primary school children. It has also been shortlisted for the Indieverse Awards, 'Favourite Kids Reads 6 & Under' category. The results are out later this year. My second book in the series, 'I'm Going to Have a Brother', will be published on 10 April. Reading was such an important part of my childhood and I want to turn as many children into bookworms as possible!

Although I'm writing children's books by day, I'm reading thrillers, crime and mystery by night. I also enjoy historical fiction and fantasy; although I can dip my toe into any genre as long as a book makes me feel something. Anything but bored!

As an indie author myself, I know how tough this process is. Not only do you have to be a writer, but a marketer, salesperson, social media guru and everything in between. That's why I want to support you to reach your goals because there's nothing quite like holding your book in your hands and sharing it with the world. I'm here to help you and look forward to being part of your journey.
