Lara Maiklem moved from her family’s farm to London in the 1990s and has been mudlarking along the River Thames for fifteen years. She now lives with her family on the Kent coast within easy reach of the river, which she visits as regularly as the tides permit. Her first book, Mudlarking, was a critically acclaimed bestseller. Lara has the largest online following of any mudlark and has been featured in the Telegraph, Guardian, Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, among other notable publications.
