Jimmy Rice, Laura Tait Book and Novel

Jimmy Rice, Laura Tait - Authors


Laura and Jimmy became mates while studying journalism at Sheffield University, so sitting in pubs talking about life and love is something they've been doing for the last ten years. Now they're writing books together they just take their laptops and write it all down, but little else has changed. Jimmy still tells Laura off for always being late, and Laura can still drink Jimmy under the table. Their friendship survives because Laura makes tea exactly how Jimmy likes it (he once took a picture of his perfect brew on Laura's phone so she can colour match it for strength) and because Jimmy noted Laura's weakness for custard creams and stocks up accordingly. Laura Tait is a writer for Shortlist and Stylist magazines and Jimmy Rice is a freelance journalist. Both live in London. Follow them on Twitter at @LauraAndJimmy.
