Laura Lam was raised near San Francisco, California, by two former Haight-Ashbury hippies. Both of them encouraged her to finger-paint to her heart's desire, colour outside of the lines, and consider the library a second home. This led to an overabundance of daydreams. She relocated to Scotland to be with her husband, whom she met on the internet when he insulted her taste in books. She almost blocked him but is glad she didn't. At times she misses the sunshine.
This International Women's Day we're celebrating some of the incredible female voices in sci-fi and fantasy.
Laura Lam, author of the Micah Grey trilogy and False Hearts, sets the scene of her new novel Shattered Minds and the 'brave new world' of her dystopian thriller.
Laura Lam's False Hearts is out in paperback now, and to celebrate we've got a brand new introduction from the author herself, setting the scene for the incendiary action.
Laura Lam, author of False Hearts, gives us an insight into how and where she writes best.
Laura Lam, author of Pantomime, discusses the books that influenced her writing of Micah Grey, a genderfluid character, and how Science Fiction has been challenging the gender binary for years, and just how important that representation is.
We're in the Big Top, flying high with the acrobats and avoiding the lion's teeth as we count down the Top 5 Circus novels to celebrate Laura Lam's magnificent Micah Grey trilogy , Pantomime, Shadowplay, and Masquerade.

Originally posted on AUTHOR ALLSORTS: “When words leave off, music begins.” – Heinrich Heine I often listen to music as I write. I go to cafes a lot.
