Laura Reynolds is a content creator based in Chelmsford, Essex. On a long car journey at the start of 2020, she decided to use her interest in language to write her first childrenâ€™s picture book, Joanie May. Inspired by her grandmotherâ€™s childhood stories, she imagined reading it to her own children, Eli and Jude, to make sure it was perfect. It was soon after writing it, she set about working with her favourite illustrator Lucie Sheridan, to bring Joanie May and her adventures to life. Laura hopes to put pen to paper again in the future to create further playful kidsâ€™ books.
