Laura Cooney

Laura Cooney wants to belong in your bookshelf and maybe even on your to-be-read pile. 

She is a writer from Edinburgh and when she isn't wrangling words or teaching she is also wrangling the two small humans who call her home. 

Her work is varied and she writes for both children and grown ups. She is as passionate for one as she is for the other, occasionally feeling like two very distinct people with only one name. 

So she made two. Lozzawriting and Lozzakidwriting, both on Twitter, find her there doing both her things. 

Her work has been featured in many places which can be found below. 

She is the winner of one award: The #Kidlitvibes Wheel of Feels 2023.

Laura hopes you can watch his space for more. 

In the meantime, happy reading!

Praise for Motherbunnet

'I loved every word of this. 

I feel seen.' 

'It's profound. I've never read anything like it.'

'Laura Cooney shakes off the heavy hat of motherhood. A raw and honest collection.'

'Honest, real, raw, tender, vulnerable, humorous, and with a strong voice that made me feel like Laura was reading them to me herself. Cracking poetry, and so relatable, I heard myself sigh.'
