Lauren Monroe is a novelist residing on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. A native of Pittsburgh, she grew up around boats and beautiful scenery in Western Maryland, later moving to the Washington, D.C. suburbs before settling across the Bay Bridge.

Various experiences shape her writing including marriage, family, friendships, a graduate degree in the social sciences, and her career paths.

In her spare time, the author enjoys reading fiction and non-fiction, boating, swimming, biking, good food, and travel.

The Maryland Shores has two books in the series, with Second Chances: Book Two launching spring 2015.

Letting Go: Book One of The Maryland Shores women's fiction series was published in 2014, and a second edition appeared April 2015.

Be willing to learn. Read voraciously. Take feedback well. Surround yourself with positivity.

More to come! BTW: I have a "Writing Life" survey that I'm happy to share with serious writers of either fiction or non-fiction. You may take the survey and results will be presented at a future writer's conference where I will give a talk about all aspects of the writing life. Please message me with contact info if you're interested.(less)

Peace and quiet, nice scenery helps. Nothing beats parking yourself in a chair, treating it as a job, and just writing. Period.(less)
