Author A to Z

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 issue-driven romantic novels, 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.

A long-serving wife, and a mother of two outspoken children, Laura is constantly amazed by the question, ‘Are there any plans for tea?’

Living in and enjoying the inspirational county of Dorset, Laura is a graduate of the RNA’s New Writers’ Scheme, a member of her local writing group, Off The Cuff, and one eighth of The Romaniacs.

Her books are published by award-winning publisher Choc Lit.
