Laura Kemp Book and Novel

Laura Kemp - Author


Laura Kemp started writing to get out of doing a real job. A journalist for 15 years, she turned freelance after having a baby because she couldn't get out of the house, washed and dressed, until lunchtime at the earliest. A columnist and contributor, she regularly writes for national newspapers and magazines, such as the Daily Mail, and spends too much time on Twitter (@laurajanekemp). Mums Like Us is her first novel, which she hopes will strike a chord with exhausted mums who don't iron either. Married with a son and a neurotic cat, Laura lives in the provinces, where she goes about her business ignorant of what's on-trend until it reaches her town, by which time it's out of fashion. She is currently working on her next novel, Mums On Strike, due out in 2014. To find out more visit her website at www.laura-kemp.com
