Laura Marney's headshot

I'm a writer of five successful novels and university lecturer/teacher of 15 years' experience with all kinds of groups. Happy to perform and talk - often telling funny stories about the little-known aspects of being a writer - or offer a more inclusive and interactive workshop. (Photo credit: David Ramos Fernandes)
