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.

YA novels, witty

Jalil 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
