Ellie Campbell

Ellie Campbell is the pseudonym for sisters and collaborators, Lorraine Campbell and Pam Burks. Their latest book, Looking for LaLa was published in March 2013 and they share with us their best writing moment so far…

There are two moments that stand out.  One was finding our literary agent, Caroline Hardman.  They often say it’s harder finding an agent than a publisher and we were thrilled when she agreed to represent us. Having a professional backer, who believes in you and who puts their reputation on the line, means so much.

The second moment was having Caroline ring Pam up and tell her we’d been offered a two book contract with Arrow, an imprint of Random House.  It was just unreal.  Something we’d dreamed about but could never quite believe was going to happen. Going through our publishing journey together was tremendous.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
