Laura’s love of storytelling began at an early age and led her to undertake a degree in Film Studies and an MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University. Her interest in all things nautical comes from her dad, a retired naval officer. The Adventures of Pug are based on the antics of her own very silly dog, Brian. Though Brian has not yet captained a ship he has managed to convince Laura to add another puppy to their family, Florence. Together the three of them live in a tiny cottage just outside of Bath where they have lots of adventures and eat lots of jam tarts – all in the name of research of course!
