Laura Baker

  • 5 stars across 36 books
Laura grew up in Canada with a passion for stories. She followed this passion to attain an Honours BA in English and then moved abroad to Wales for an MA in Creative Writing and an adventure - and she never left! She now lives in a lovely coastal town in South Wales with her husband, two sons and big basset hound. She has been writing and editing award-winning books for adults and children for the last ten years and loves finding special stories to tell in the everyday, relatable world of a child (or dog).
