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 100,000 copies to date and becoming a kindle number one bestseller. The paperback is due out in January 2018, and Friend Request has sold in a further seven territories around the world including the USA, Germany, France, Poland and the Netherlands.
Laura is working on her second novel, which is expected to be released later in 2018.
Laura lives in Kent with her husband and two children.
