Lauren Skidmore grew up in Kansas, with stints in Ohio and New York, and currently lives in Utah. She attended Brigham Young University where she earned a BA in English Teaching with an emphasis in Teaching English as a Second Language and Japanese. She then spent a year in Japan teaching and travelling. She hasn’t made it to Europe yet, but it’s on the list and has been to 30 states in the U.S. so far. When she’s not exploring new places, you can probably find her on the internet with fifteen windows open and looking at just one more thing before actually getting something done.

One of the most common questions I get is if there will be a sequel to WHAT IS HIDDEN. The answer is yes, and I can finally give you more details on book two.

And because I know you’re probably not even reading this sentence, let’s get straight to it. The title to the next book is:

WHAT IS LOST

And the release date is March 10, 2015!

What do think? Who’s excited? Who can’t wait to see the cover? Jo... Read more of this blog post »

That was a fun read. Definitely got the Firefly vibes, with the space rogues and pirates, the found family, the general drama. I didn't expect to like Doran at all, but it's amazing what some good old amnesia will do for a person.

“What's the point in being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable? How very odd, to believe God gave you life, and yet not think that life asks more of you than watching TV.”
John Green
