A collection of uncompromising poetry observing the negativity and self-fulfilling futility of division counterpoised with the importance of care and empathy to explore what really matters. Includes a Foreword by Professor Mike Thomas, Vice Chancellor UCLAN. Fault Lines is Laura's second collection of poetry from Flapjack Press. "One of the country's finest poets, both on the page and on the stage.

A spirit at once empathetic and revolutionary. Real words for heart-breaking times, a call to action!" - Attila the Stockbroker, poet & musician"A poetic battle cry.

I'd like my teenage daughter to read these poems because, as women, we shouldn't have to wait for middle-age to claim the right to be ourselves." - Alice Nutter, ex-Chumbawamba, screenwriter & playwright"Defiant, furious, vulnerable, bloody-minded and wonderfully joyous, this volume encourages us all to hang on in there.

Fill your heart. Read this book." - Steve Pottinger, poet & performer"This is poetry that does not just describe our world: it challenges you to change it. And it does so with such class." - Janine Booth, writer, poet & activist"Laura has the key quality to be a true poet: something to say.

This book is of and for the times we are living through and ought to be on school curricula." - Julian Jordon, Director of Write Out Loud"Personal, political, social and relational.

Her strength and consistency as a poet is raising sometimes difficult but often comic issues to our attention." - Professor Mike Thomas, V-C of UCLAN
