Laura is a psychology graduate and ex-lawyer turned poet, author, and children’s advocate. Her writing has won multiple international awards and been featured on TV, radio, and public transport, as well as in hospitals, hospices, prisons, books, magazines, and newspapers around the world. Her work reflects her strong interest in child and family mental health, the roles adults can take in helping children experiencing difficulties, and making research evidence accessible to diverse audiences.
Her books include Dear Ugly Sisters, Rita’s Rabbit, Being Me, Welcome to Our Table, Celebrate! (co-written with the British Museum), We Need to Talk About Love/Love Factually (which Richard Curtis describes as ‘much better and more useful than my film’), and Please Find Attached, an Audible Original (and paperback by Bloomsbury) that seeks to help a wider audience engage with Professor Robbie Duschinsky’s work on children’s mental health, especially his contributions in Cornerstones of Attachment Research.
When not writing, Laura runs workshops in schools around the world and works with organisations such as the National Literacy Trust, Royal Society of Medicine, and UNICEF to try to improve the lives of children.
