Laura Marshall

Laura Marshall grew up in Wiltshire and studied English at the University of Sussex.

After almost twenty years working in conference production, in 2015 Laura decided it was time to fulfil a lifetime's ambition to write a novel, and enrolled on the Curtis Brown Creative three month novel writing course.

Her first novel, Friend Request, was shortlisted for both the Bath Novel Award 2016 and the Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize 2016 and was published by Little, Brown in the UK in July 2017, selling over 200,000 copies in the UK to date and becoming a Sunday Times top ten bestseller in paperback, and kindle number one bestseller. Friend Request has sold in a further fifteen territories around the world including the USA, Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands.

Laura's second novel, Three Little Lies, will be released in summer 2018.

Laura lives in Kent with her husband and two children.
