My name is Laura and I'm a new member of the team.
I've travelled fairly widely throughout my life; my first experience being
when I flew (alone) at the age of fourteen to meet my cousins, for the
first time, in New York. I loved it! Though I was surprised to be asked by
so many people if I'd seen snow before! I've done all kinds of work from
refurbishing a forty-foot yacht during one of the hottest summers we've
seen here to being editorial assistant on a regional newspaper.
years ago my (devastatingly good-looking) husband and I decided to leave
London, where we had both grown up, and move to the north of England to
chance our luck at a new life. Things have worked out well, and we have
everything we could hope for.
I have studied the social sciences, the arts
and Victorian history, I have a diploma in creative writing from Sheffield
University, and I'm just now completing a course in proofreading and
copy-editing. In my spare time I like to read, play chess, cook
extravaganzas for my friends, go to the pub, or snuggle up on the sofa
with my husband and the cats to watch a good horror film (preferably with
a plateful of doughnuts).
