Laura is an author based in London. Her first novel, English Animals was published by Little, Brown in January 2017 and she is currently finishing a second. She is particularly interested in animals, rural life, gender and sexuality and her books tend to form themselves around these themes. 

Apart from writing, Laura is a producer-director specialising in music documentaries. She joined the BBC Music TV Department in 2005 to work on Brasil, Brasil after graduating from Cambridge University with MPhil specialising in Brazilian music - her passion - and has been there on and off for most of her television career working on arts documentaries - including Flamenco: Gypsy Soul, Krautrock: The Rebirth of Germany, Synth Britannia, Latin Music USA, The Art of Mexico and Reginald D Hunter's Songs of the South.

She has written an article on dating women for the Guardian as well as some pieces about her adventures travelling alone and hiking in the USA. She speaks Spanish and Portuguese, likes going for long walks with her dog Frank and making playlists.

Note on the photography page: She has spent the last twelve years experimenting with double exposures taken with an Olympus OM10 with mixed results, some of which were published in the Spring 2018 edition of The Tangerine.
