Laura Sackton

Laura Sackton is a lifelong reader, writer, and lover of made up worlds. In a past life she ran a small organic vegetable farm. She's currently living on a tiny island thirty miles out to sea. When she's not busy working as a landscaper, she spends her days wrangling a novel-in-progress, chasing her dog across the moors, and spending as much time as physically possible in the ocean, and reading (but not at the same time).
