Laura's first non-fiction book for adults, Love, Factually, will be published by Bloomsbury in 2019. The book explores love by combining academic research with interviews she has conducted with hundreds of strangers across 40 countries on every continent.
Laura also writes for children, usually in the form of poems. In 2016, she won the Caterpillar Poetry Prize, and her poems have been widely published around the world (including by Bloomsbury, Macmillan, Wayland, The Emma Press, The Irish Times, The Caterpillar, Teach Primary, The Pool, Countdown and Touchdown). Her poetry has been illustrated by Chris Riddell, set to music by Cheryl Frances-Hoad, and performed by Helena Bonham Carter. Laura has performed on BBC Radio 3, her poetry has been featured on BBC Radio 6 Music, and this year, Poetry Ireland featured her as one of eight poets displayed on the Dublin underground.
Her professional background is varied: she worked as a face painter, studied flying trapeze, philosophy and psychology, and swam in Antarctica before becoming a lawyer for an international law firm.
