"I make time to write because it's a passion. Writing is the only way to make the characters in my mind a reality."
As a child, Laura would make up plays to perform with her sister and counsins at her grandparents' house. She enrolled in drama school and piano classes, plotting, performing, writing lyrics to songs. In school, she wrote screenplays and stories. She can remember blushing at her first use of an expletive. Safe to say, Laura has always had a flare for the dramatic.
At some point in her late teens, sensibility won out and Laura enrolled in law school. She studied Law at the University of Durham, then studied for a diploma in Legal Practice and became a master of International Trade Law.
When her student days came to an end, Laura spent time travelling the world, indulging in new sights, sounds, people and cultures. She kept a daily travel journal and wrote snippets of her adventures for family and friends back home. It was on Bondi Beach when Laura was living in Sydney, Australia, that she picked up a tatty notepad and pencil and began writing her first novel (now safely tucked away in a drawer).
When her legal career brought her back to London, England, the writing bug bit Laura again and she found an idea that stuck. From a small bedroom in the city, Gregory Ryans and Scarlett Heath were born in book 1 of the Vengeful Love trilogy (romantic suspense).
Not content with staying in one place, Laura moved with her husband and dog to the Caribbean, where she continued to write and published Scarred by You (romantic suspense).
Mother Nature intervened with Hurricane Irma and sent Laura and her family to Jersey (UK Channel Islands), where she released her romantic comedy series, Brits in Manhattan.
