Laura Lamson obituary

Laura Lamson, an American born screenwriter who lived most of her life in Britain and was a long-standing Guild member, died in October at the age of 60. She was probably best known for adapting Ann Oakley’s novel The Men’s Room for the BBC.

There's an obituary in The Guardian today by Amanda Schiff.
Laura was a technically accomplished writer, in full command of all the tools of her craft, who brought a clear-sighted and nuanced understanding of storytelling through character to all her work. She passed on her wisdom and experience to a new generation of screenwriters, teaching on the MA Screenwriting course at Leeds Metropolitan University and, more recently, at Birkbeck College, University of London, on its MA Creative Writing course.
