I write books, I've written plays and screenplays and plan to do so again (in fact I'm working on the theatrical adaptation of The Bees)

I work best secluded in nature or in the midst of a crowd of strangers.

Introvert with the perfect job.

Closer to P-Day

The first reviews are coming out and it's a funny time - I'm conscious of what a wonderful position I'm in - my second novel being published - but also that there is something inherently unhealthy to the part that writes, to be in this pending state.

The Ice by Laline Paull
"The Eco message is delivered loud and clear in 'The Ice'. This is how the future might possibly look if we choose to ignore the signs of global warming. The author doesn't try to force the message down our throats, but it takes centre stage in thi..." Read more of this review »

“You have wings and courage and a brain. Do not annoy me by asking permission." Lily 500 in The Bees”
Laline Paull, The Bees

“Then kindly recall that variation is not the same as deformity.”
Laline Paull, The Bees

“Flora took pleasure in the delicacy of her approach and studied the ways of the smallest, sweetest blooms she could find, tiny pimpernels and forget-me-nots hiding in the pockets of the fields. The energy of the sun on her body and the joy of foraging filled her soul. She flew the fields and gathered until the light began to fade and she heard the sound of her forager sisters' wings turning for home. Then she joined them.”
Laline Paull, The Bees
