Hello fellow book dragon! Thank you for visiting my author page. :)

My name is Lauren, I'm a fantasy author of character-driven stories and epic adventure. My books usually contain dragons, rarely feature romance, and are typically fun and hopeful.

If you’re looking for your next epic fantasy story, let me introduce you to the WORLD OF LINARIA! It’s a light-hearted, fast-paced fantasy adventure with bucket-loads of magic, dragons, sky pirates, and airships.

Prefer the demon-hunting, kick-ass characters found in urban fantasy? The KOUZLO SAGA is the series for you! Demons reign supreme across not just Earth, but countless dimensions, and it’s down to the secret supernatural organisation of the Kouzlo to hunt them down.

I have a degree in Psychol

A tough question! I love them all for so many different reasons - protagonists, antagonists, and side characters!

I have a soft spot for Amarah, she's probably the "oldest" character in terms of she's stayed true to herself since the book's conception, she's very strong in herself and what she believes in, very well fleshed out (I'd like to think!) plus she can fly an airship. So she's pretty awesome in that regard, too. She's fierce without being nasty, and confident without being arrogant - though she sometimes crosses that line - and a lot of people like her voice.

L.L. is on page 63 of 567 of The Shadow Saint: A fantastic start, though not as aggressively gripping as The Gutter Prayer's opening! Also people's drinks accidentally swapping from champagne to wine, back to champagne, then back again to wine over a few pages slightly pulled me from my immersion! 🙈🙈 Still a fantastic read so far, and hoping to get through it quickly! 😊😊

“Humans see what they want to see.”
Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”
Soren Kierkegaard

“But you can't make people listen. They have to come round in their own time, wondering what happened and why the world blew up around them. It can't last.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

“Sometimes we find ourselves walking through life blindfolded, and we try to deny that we're the ones who securely tied the knot.”
Jodi Picoult, Vanishing Acts

“This is why she hates Alabaster: not because he is more powerful, not even because he is crazy, but because he refuses to allow her any of the polite fictions and unspoken truths that have kept her comfortable, and safe, for years.”
