Laure Eve is a novelist and scriptwriter. She is the author of critically acclaimed YA duologies The Graces and The CursesFearsome Dreamer and The Illusionists, and adult fantasy duology Blackheart Knights.

A British-French hybrid, she was born in Paris and grew up in Cornwall. She speaks English and French, and can hold a vague conversation, usually about food, in Greek. She is very English about comedy, and very French about cheese.


Selling comic books in foreign languages, loosing blood-curdling screams into a recording booth, and striking odd poses as an artist’s model are just some of the things she has done for a living.


The name is pronounced lore eev. (in English. In French there's a whole back of the throat deal).
