In 2011, Lauren Layne left her web marketing job in Seattle to pursue her dream of a full-time writing career in New York City.

Since then, she's published more than twenty contemporary romantic comedies, hit the USA TODAY and New York Times bestseller lists, and sold more than half a million happily-ever-afters.

Although born-and-raised on the west coast, she gave her heart to New York City, and lives in midtown Manhattan with her high-school sweetheart and a Pomeranian named Bailey. 

Hobbies include cocktails, high heels and an unusual obsession with presidential biographies. 


The LL Lifestyle


A city girl through-and-through, Lauren believes in living every day with a touch of glamour—think champagne on a Tuesday, swiping on your favorite splurgy lip-gloss to walk the dog, or pouring that budget wine into your best stemware because you're worth it.
