Laura Steven

Laura Salters

Laura Steven is an author, journalist and screenwriter from the northernmost town in England. Her first novel, Run Away, was published by HarperCollins in 2015, and Perfect Prey is due out in summer 2016 – both under the pseudonym Laura Salters.

While juggling various freelance gigs and an MA in Creative Writing, you’re most likely to find Laura at Mslexia HQ (where she works in advertising), on stage performing, eating donuts, or penning TV pilots, radio dramas and feature screenplays – sometimes all at once.

As a features writer with very little sense of self-preservation, there isn’t much Laura won’t do in the name of a good piece – past assignments have included skydiving from 15,000ft, learning professional blackjack, walking across the roof of a football stadium, and travelling to a Serbian fortress to cover a music festival. She also once paraglided off a mountain, but that was entirely accidental.
