Lauren writes Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Paranormal for Young Adults. She grew up in a small coastal town in Florida trying to convince her family and friends through tall tales that she was anything but an ordinary girl. She took that whole “you can be anything you want to be” advice to a whole other-worldly level. Now she lives on an old dairy farm in an even smaller town in Maine and pretty much does the same thing, though the stories aren’t about her anymore.
Lauren went to school for film, helped make indie movies, and worked in Hollywood. Though she held almost every crew position there is, both on set and off, it took her a long time to realize what she really wanted to do was write. After moving back to the east coast, she rekindled her love for reading which brought her from working on screenplays to writing her first novel. It’s still a big hot mess, but she loves it anyway.
She has an unhealthy obsession with exclamation points and the caps lock key, thinks going to the movies should still be an Orphan Annie style event, and fangirls like it’s 1999. You can find Lauren online here: Twitter, her Blog, Tumblr, Pinterest, Goodreads.
