Bonnier Books UK’s new digital-first imprint Embla Books has bought Laura Starkey’s debut, RACHEL RYAN’S RESOLUTIONS, as its first acquisition together with a second novel in a two-book deal. RACHEL RYAN’S RESOLUTIONS is an unputdownable, laugh-out-loud read, with shades of Bridget Jones and the classic hallmarks of an upmarket rom-com. The debut will explore the pursuit and perception of love, with a lead character that many readers will immediately take to their hearts. Publication is scheduled for September 2021.
Laura Starkey studied English & Related Literature at the University of York, then spent several years as a secondary school teacher before going on to work as a digital copywriter, editor and content designer.
