Lauren is a ninja.
Fiction – I wish! How cool would that be! I do have a black belt in Taekwondo that I got before I had my daughter. I have often thought about going back and working on my second degree.

Lauren has always been a writer.
Fiction – Before I was a mommy, I was an 8th, 9th, and 11th grade English teacher. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Georgetown College. In college I wrote a few short stories, but nothing long until 2010 – I don’t plan on stopping!
