But before her feet can touch the ground, the gymnasts are thrown into their first competition of the year to determine who will make up the Academy team for the upcoming State Prelims. The pressure is on and with training harder than ever and growing rivalries amongst the gymnasts Abby begins to doubt if she is in fact Academy material.

As an adult, Laura has spent the vast majority of her career working in publishing as an editor. After several years, she decided to put down her red pen and open up her laptop to create books of her own.

Laura’s books revolve around all the things she loved as a child – friendships, sport and a little bit of magic. Her series include The Royal Academy of Sport for Girls and Amelia Chamelia.

Laura lives in Sydney with her husband and two children.

Praise for The Royal Academy of Sport for Girls 1: High Flyers

“This is a new series that will appeal to independent readers who are sports-minded and who are looking for stories about girls who excel at what they do . . . Each book stands alone – it is the setting that is the common theme rather than the characters – but the whole series will be welcomed by those who enjoy reading about girls like themselves and putting themselves in the character’s shoes as they confront the choices that have to be made.”

Barbara Braxton, The Bottom Shelf blog

“High Flyers is the first in this competitive series for middle to upper grade readers with a penchant for sports. Debuting with the gymnastics scene, Laura Sieveking puts her own sporting background into this action-packed, intense experience. With themes including friendship, determination, and overcoming self-doubt, any pre-teen with the drive for success will be able to relate.”

Romi Sharp, CBCA Reading Time
