Laura grew up in Malawi, and has lived on four continents.
By day, she is a communications consultant and speechwriter whose words have been spoken at the United Nations and published in The New York Times.
In the quiet hours before dawn, she is a novelist.
In recent years, Laura, her army officer husband and their two children have called a succession of British military bases home. They are now settled in Oxfordshire.
