Laura Heathfield

Assistant to Tanera

Laura studied law at Kingston university and a love of travel led her into a career in aviation. She spent over 20 years with Virgin Atlantic, where she worked both in the air as Flight Service Manager, and on the ground in the Press Office working on events and fostering relationships within the media.

After deciding to make a career around her love of all things books, Laura joined the agency as Tanera’s assistant in January 2022. Laura enjoys all commercial fiction, with a real passion for commercial rom-coms, book club fiction and suspense and feels very privileged to be working with Tanera and the authors on her list.

She brings her extensive PR experience to her role at the Agency and is part of the team that manages the Darley Anderson social media accounts and helped establish #DAOpenWeek.
