I decided to become a writer in the third grade (or, as my Canadian friends call it, grade three), after winning a "Why My Mother is the Greatest" essay contest and having my entry published in a major newspaper. Seeing my words in print was a thrill! But everyone told me it's too hard for novelists to get published, so after college I spent fourteen years as the CEO of my own jewelry store chain before writing my first book. A mistake? Maybe...but my first heroine, Amethyst, was a jeweler, so at least I took advantage of that wise old saying, "Write what you know." And I learned a good lesson: Don't let other people tell you what you can or can't do!

I write humorous historical romance mostly set in England and Scotland in the 17th and 19th

“When he noticed her stifling another yawn, he took her elbow. “At least lie down for a few minutes,” he said, steering her toward the bed. “Oh, I couldn’t.” Dragging her feet, she eyed the four-poster with trepidation. “Of course you can. There’s nothing improper about it if I’m not in the bed with you. I won’t even pull down the covers—don’t think of it as a bed, think of it as a handy horizontal surface for resting. Here…” Relinquishing her arm, he dashed to the sitting room.”
Lauren Royal, The Viscount's Wallflower Bride

“Love was dangerous. It made one too vulnerable, too open to the pain of loss and betrayal.”
Lauren Royal, Amethyst

“He'd never seen a woman wring her hands. Not in real life. He'd thought people only wrung their hands in plays.”
