Laura Steven is an award-winning author and shameless coffee addict from the northernmost town in England. She is currently represented by Chloe Seager at Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency.
She has published several books for young adults, such as The Society For Soulless Girls, a sapphic horror retelling of Jekyll & Hyde which was shortlisted for the YA Book Prize, and Every Exquisite Thing, which reimagines The Picture of Dorian Gray. Her debut The Exact Opposite Of Okay won the inaugural Comedy Women In Print Prize, while The Love Hypothesis was optioned for TV by an Emmy-winning team. Her books have been widely translated, and her work has appeared in The i Paper, The Guardian and Buzzfeed.
When she’s not writing, you can probably find her trail running, reading chunky fantasy novels, baking cookies, playing old men at chess, or ignoring her husband and son to perfect her Stardew Valley farm. You can find her on Instagram at @laurasteven and TikTok at @authorlaurasteven.
