About this author

I am the author of two YA novels, MY INVENTED LIFE and MISS FORTUNE COOKIE. I also contributed a short story to the anthology THE FIRST TIME.

Though I grew up on a sail boat and loved traveling the world as a kid, I'm still afraid of the ocean. I much prefer other modes of transportation these days--plane, train, or car. Walking is best.

I love books with multi-faceted, intriguing characters. The best one make me laugh, cry, and turn the pages long past my bed time.

When I'm not reading or writing, I spend time with family and friends, talking about everything under the sun. Add in some good food to the mix, top it off with chocolate, and I'm truly happy.


To celebrate the release of the final book in Kersten Hamilton’s riveting Goblin Wars Trilogy, you can get a copy of the first book free at iTunes. Theoffer is only good this week, so jump on it!

You can also download a copy onto your Kindle for 0.00 at Amazon.

The Geography of You and Me is one part guided world tour, teenaged Meg Ryan movie, one part "I can't believe that just happened", and altogether AMAZING!!!

Kaaveh(cavalery) Hi Lauren
Thanks 4 be my friend


Alexandra Aldrich Hi Lauren, Please consider reading/rating my new memoir The Astor Orphan. Some have said it reads like a 19th century novel, since you like Jane Austen! Thanks, Alexandra
