Laura Wood

Laura Wood is finishing up a PhD in English literature at the University of Warwick where she also teaches some of the loveliest students you’re ever likely to meet. Her research is on the figure of the reader in nineteenth century literature and she uses this as an excuse to read lots of Edith Nesbit books and to frequently revisit Anne of Green Gables.


She loves Georgette Heyer novels, Fred Astaire films, travelling to far flung places, recipe books, poetry, cosy woollen jumpers, crisp autumn leaves, new stationery, sensation fiction, salted caramel, feminism, Rufus Sewell’s cheek-bones, dogs, and lashings of ginger beer.
