Laura Mucha is an ex-lawyer turned author, poet and speaker. Her debut book Love Factually / We Need to Talk About Love was described by the Daily Mail as ‘fantastic’ and by Richard Curtis as ‘much better and more useful than my film’. The book explores love by combining academic research with interviews she conducted with hundreds of strangers across 40 countries on every continent. It has been featured on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, WNYC, ABC Australia and BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour and was Sydney Morning Herald’s Pick of the Week.
Laura also writes for children. She has won two international poetry prizes (the Caterpillar Poetry Prize 2016 and the YorkMix Poems for Children 2019), and her poems have been illustrated by Chris Riddell, set to music by Cheryl Frances-Hoad and performed by Helena Bonham Carter. Laura is represented by Caroline Walsh at David Higham Associates for her children’s writing, and by Leah Middleton for Film / TV.
