J.L. Smith lives in Buckinghamshire with her family, and a West Highland terrier called Angus. She was born and brought up in Glasgow, and loved to write from a very young age.
A friend once told her: 'You're funny, you should write funny'. So, that's exactly what she did and, inspired by her two sons idea of how to 'do posh', Cecil Trumpington-Potts was born - along with his panty wanty woos!
She has appeared twice on Dave Gorman's radio comedy show Genius, and thinks humour is under-rated.
