    Hi Laura,
    I can’t wait to learn more about you. I have read a few of your books and they are my type. I am quite a sporty person myself. I am one of the fastest swimmers and sprinters in my school. I have represented our school in a variety of different Interschool and Champions Sports Carnivals. It is not just about winning it is also about getting over it when you may not get what you hoped.

    Did you always like writing? Were you always good at writing? Who inspired you to write? What is the best thing in your opinion about writing? What is your favourite sport now?

    Hello Laura, you sound really inspiring to me as i like most of those sports you listed. I love to play netball and basketball. I always remember to myself that it’s not all about winning it’s just if you give it your best try. I will need to get onto your new books as I have never read them before, but I am sure they will be my type as i like sport. I wish you luck with your books and sport. I hope you enjoy

    I absolutely love reading!!! Sports is one of my favourite things to do them together is amazing. I love your thinking!!! I really need to check out these books. Your text already makes me think you are a good role model.

    Hi Laura,
    You have such a great name. I love to swim and run and ride my bike. I find that often the characters I write end up liking one of those sports as well. My characters often seem very similar to myself and I don’t know how to make sure that I can write about different types of people without it sounding forced. How do you make your characters different to yourself while still writing about things you love?
