I will always consider myself a writer, and still adore writing witty banters and stomach-flip moments whenever a new idea strikes.

But these days, you'll find Adobe Illustrator or Showit up on my laptop as often as my writing app, because the muse knocks in a different way lately.

Prior to my writing career, I was an e-commerce and web marketing manager at T-Mobile's headquarters. My familiarity with website best practices helped me identify a major weak point in the publishing world: author websites!

At best, they were a little ugly and a lot out-of-date. At worst, nonexistent.

Combining my knowledge of websites and the author world has always been a passion, and somewhere along the way it the passion.

My fellow writers are an underserved group, and deserve nice things. I like to make those things.

I love happily-ever-after
and pretty things.

Hi, I'm Lauren.

My Story

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a romance author. In 2013, my lifelong dream came true when Penguin Random House published my first novel.

The forty books and ten years that followed were unreal. From hitting the New York Times bestseller list to being featured in Oprah Magazine and The Wall Street Journal, it was a decade full of "is this really my life?" moments.
