Laura Joy Smith is the creator of all the crazy characters, fantastical worlds and many stories you can read from Popple's Tales.
Laura has spent her life with a love of stories and imagery. A desire to draw everything that catches her eyes, especially something that amuses her has led to exaggerating the world around her into the make believe stories you can enjoy today!
Writing her first stories for her own amusement she soon found fans amongst friends and family, and best of all children.
Although having spent a life time drawing, writing was new to Laura, but the challenge was the great beginnings of further ideas and inspiration for Laura!
Still creating and writing stories to add to her collections, Laura has no intention of slowing down anytime soon, with even more magical and bright tales coming your way!
