Possessing little in the way of domestic skills, and with an insatiable hunger to write, Laura E. James found a much better use than cooking, for the family kitchen. Tucked neatly in one corner is her very small, but very tidy desk from where she produces character and issue driven women's fiction, short stories and flash fiction. She considers her legendary affair with stationery, the urge to smell new books, and her mum's love of reading as the catalysts for writing.
Living in and enjoying the inspirational county of Dorset, her formative years were spent in Watford, a brief train ride away from the bright lights of London. Here she indulged her love of live music, and, following a spectacular Stevie Nicks gig, decided to take up singing, a passion that scored her second place in a national competition.
Now in her formed years, Laura is a graduate of the Romantic Novelists' Association's New Writers' Scheme, a member of her local writing group, Off The Cuff, and one eighth of 2015 RNA Industry Awards Media Star of the Year winners, The Romaniacs.
With her debut novel, 'Truth or Dare?', the first standalone in the Chesil Beach Books series, nominated for the Best Romantic Ebook 2013, her second, 'Follow Me Follow You', a 2014 Lovereading.co.uk editorial selection, and her third, 'What Doesn't Kill You', the first title under the new Dark imprint, Laura writes for the award-winning Choc Lit.
