hey! i'm lauren

I've loved romance ever since my earliest reading memories when I read Nancy Drew more for the Ned Nickerson mentions than I did the mystery. I figured the only thing better than reading romance would be writing it. I was right!

To all the aspiring novelists out there who don't know where to start. Approach it first and foremost as a reader: what book would you kill to find on your Kindle or bookshelf?

Write that. You won't regret it. 💕

Most of my stories have explicit sex scenes. A few do not. All have happy endings.
