Lauren is a writer of YA speculative fiction and a dedicated eater of queso. She grew up constantly cold in Eastern Pennsylvania, where she spent her childhood devouring novels by the fireplace and dreaming of stranger worlds.
Now she lives in Middle Tennessee with her husband, two daughters, and a half-blind dog. The temperature is far more agreeable, but she still only rarely ventures outside.
When she’s not busy with her family, binge-watching TV shows, or writing books about dragons or superheroes, Lauren can probably be found in close proximity to coffee, tacos, or a bookstore.
Lauren is also a regular writer on Avenging Force, a female-run site dedicated to all things geek.
