Welcome to my place! I’m Lauren – an author, homeschooler, and Christ follower. When I’m not over at The Doubling Project documenting my family’s journey through the world of picking and flipping, I’m here . . . writing . . . teaching . . . collecting–on a quest to dwell on whatever is lovely. My middle-grade books are a fun hobby of sorts–full of lavish gardens, gifted inventors, and devious wolves existing in an underground world! And for those of the adultish persuasion, I’m working on something very dear to my heart; it is my hope you will find this work A Lovely Place to Dwell—a place where hardships turn into humor and macarons turn into, uh . . . well, I don’t have a clever alliteration to go with macarons–they’re just important. That’s all you need to know for now 🙂
See you around!

Praise for Orlo: The Created!
Lauren H. Brandenburg has done it again with Orlo: The Created! As a Christian music artist, I meet families from all over the world—I consistently see a need for safe, clean stories with a strong faith theme that both children and the family can enjoy. As with her first series, the Books of Orlo promise to be a solution to this need! – Danny Gokey, Christian Performing Artist and American Idol Finalist

The Books of Orlo
Orlo: The Created – NOW AVAILABLE!
Orlo the deliverer has spent his entire life living in the Conclusus—an underground world where lush gardens grow on top of magnificent towers and a steam filled air balloon is the preferred method of travel by the higher class. On an unplanned trip to the Hall of Healers, Orlo overhears news of a tournament and sees the opportunity to not only increase his social status but fulfill his heart’s desire—to be an inventor. When he is ordered to retrieve a mysterious package from the Liberum, a vile place where the steam that powers and lights the Conclusus is processed by lawbreakers, Orlo’s dreams of inventing will be altered and his relationships questioned as an unexpected enemy emerges and reveals the truth behind the life he has always known.
