About the Author

Laura Jennings, Luke Jennings

Luke Jennings is the author of three novels, including the Booker Prize-nominated Atlantic. His memoir, Blood Knots, was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson and William Hill prizes. Before becoming a writer Luke trained as a dancer, and worked with classical and contemporary companies for ten years. He is currently the dance critic at the Observer, and has also written for Vanity Fair and the New Yorker.

You're less likely to know his daughter, Laura Jennings, who is thirteen and lives with her parents, two brothers and her dog Dusty. She says, 'At school I'm quite sporty but I like drama best, because I have always enjoyed acting, singing and performing. I love books, and my favourite author is Stephen King'
