Laura Wake is an interesting person. Godmother to one of our cats, keen surfer, ex-lodger, collector of robots, actress, botophobic, skier, writer, many more things, not to mention a very good friend.
She wrote a novel not so long ago called 'A Monster By Violet', which I had the pleasure of reading, but is, as yet maddeningly unpublished. Reading it was like talking to the woman herself, darkly funny, slightly terrifying and utterly compelling.
It's also her birthday tomorrow, so I've drawn her this.
Happy Birthday Laura, from Jon, Charlie and Ivy, Edward and Ava. x.
