Lauryn has always been fascinated by the paranormal, picking up a healthy Stephen King habit by the age of thirteen. Her favorite TV show growing up was "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", and she's always preferred bands like The Rolling Stones, and The Doors over whatever it is they're playing on the radio (However she admits "I Love It" by Icona Pop always puts her in a good mood).
Lauryn has been writing since she was a teenager. In the early years of her career she filled notebooks full of stories sharing them with friends. In college she spent three semesters writing for her school newspaper. Then, when she was nineteen she published her first work, a poem in her school literary magazine. When she wasn't writing, Lauryn was studying Psychology and Philosophy and graduated from UW Oshkosh with a BA in Psychology. She continues to learn and grow as a writer.
In 2012 she published her first novel "Into the Deep" which explores the intricacies of the adolescent mind and what it means to feel alone. The sequel "Hidden Beneath" followed a year later.
Lauryn currently lives with her husband and two dogs in Wisconsin.
She does NOT accept free copies of books for review.
About her writing:

Her characters tend to be between the ages of 15 and 25, as she like to explore how young people handle changes in their lives. She likes to write about people finding their place in the world and figuring out who they are. She's a fan of horror and humor, and is a sucker for a good love story.
