BioBorn in September 1985, Laurie grew up in South Staffordshire, England.
After working for ten years as a full-time medical secretary in a busy hospital, Laurie happily married Matt Holmes in 2016 and gave up her secretarial role to assist in marketing her new husband's video production business and realise her life-long dream of becoming a published author.
Inheriting her love of books from her mother, Laurie has been an avid reader from a young age. As such, she had a very misspent youth, often devouring fifty books per year! (No time for partying when there are books to be read!). Her first love will always be fantasy and science fiction, although she does love any story well told.
Besides writing, Laurie is also an artist and enjoys illustrating her work and concepts.
Laurie currently lives in South Staffordshire with her husband Matt and their two whippets, Freya & Loki.
