About MS Laura Lynott

Laura Lynott has been a journalist in the UK, Northern Ireland and Ireland for more than a decade, working on some of the biggest breaking news stories. She has used her time as a reporter to capture a realistic view of what it is like to be a woman thrust in to the big crime story. Laura risked life and limb shadowing some of Dublin's most notorious underworld figures to craft the fictional criminal faces within the pages of the book. Paper Girl is Laura's debut crime-fiction novel and it is firmly aimed at a female readership. Laura's aim was to create a female protagonist for female crime-fiction fans to relate to. Laura is a single mother to a teenage girl. The author and journalist grew up in Stockport, Greater Manchester, to Irish parents. She moved to Donegal, her mother's birth home and then Dublin, nine years ago. She has built a career as a trusted journalist who has written crime, human interest and hard news. She has covered every journalistic portfolio from health to politics and features, but feels that any story with normal people at the centre, remains the most interesting. I would like to dedicate Paper Girl to Olivia, my shining star. It is my greatest wish your dreams come true and happiness is your friend x Special thanks to my mother, Bridget, for making me determined and caring, my best friend Simon Muddiman, for designing a ground-breaking book cover, Mark O'Brien, for giving me my faith back and Tracey Bearton for being a talented and very honest editor! A special posthumous thanks to Ailsa Cranna, an excellent reporter and human being, who taught me to never forget my humanity when covering the news. RIP Ails x I'll never forget the chocolate fire guard;)show more
