Writing was not something that Lauren ever thought she’d want to do professionally. After becoming a mother, she stayed home to care for her son. In between diaper changes and nap times, Lauren found herself embarking on a journey of discovering herself through written word; with stories that somehow needed to be told, and characters who gave her glimpses into new worlds. It was there that she began her journey in fanfiction writing with a group of friends. Something sparked and a passion was lit. With many other independent authors as mentors, she grew and learned all she could to master her skills. What once was a hobby, led to a passion and then became a dream. Encouraged by her family and friends, she set out to pursue her writing, finally taking part in National Novel Writing Month, which brought forth her first novel – Circle of Secrets.
Lauren is married to her husband of twelve years, Brett. Together they have one son, Payton and a lab retriever, Meeko. She calls a small town in south-central Louisiana home. Staying busy is what she's used to, but it keeps life interesting. She has a severe case of Wanderlust.
