Laura Russell is a born and bred Mancunian who decided to follow her dream of working with books to the mean streets of London.

…I naturally gravitated towards London, that great cesspool into which all the loungers and idlers of the Empire are irresistibly drained.

Dr. John Watson’s thoughts on England’s capital, taken from A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Her career has followed an almost entirely unexpected path since then, and she currently works for The Publishing Training Centre as their Digital Content Manager. Laura’s time is generally split between helping out students, liaising with course authors, proofreading, editing, sometimes writing, and occasionally even typesetting a variety of digital content, and banging her head against a desk when her code doesn’t work (though it always gets there in the end). She appreciates her long commute as it allows so much time to read.

Laura’s preferred choice of escape route from reality is through fantasy or crime, adult or YA fiction. She likes trekking around in pretty countryside, laments the fact that living in a third floor flat prohibits cat ownership, and makes the best Yorkshire puddings in the city.
