Laura is working on her first non-fiction book for adults, Human Connection, on the subject of love, combining extensive research with conversations she has had with strangers on every continent – from a farmer in northern Argentina to a psychologist in Antarctica.
Laura also writes poetry for children. She won the 2016 Caterpillar Poetry Prize and her poems have been published by Macmillan and Bloomsbury as well as appearing in The Caterpillar, Stew, Springboard Stories, Teach Primary and The Irish Times.
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.
