Author of The Charm Necklace, Running to Stand Still, and The Longest Way Down. Writer of stories about finding beauty in brokenness.

Wife. Adventurer. Magic believer. Tea drinker. Lover of words and books, the woods and walks.

Born and bred in Detroit, Lauren grew up reading Harry Potter, watching Gilmore Girls, listening (and dancing) to a lot of music, and wondering why people do what they do. She graduated from Wayne State University with a BA in Psychology. And currently, wants nothing more than to live on a 100-acre farm in the middle of tall trees and high mountains.

Anthony’s story had been percolating in the back of my mind ever since The Charm Necklace


I had some ideas. I knew that he would find a girl standing on the ledge of a building about to jump. That he would try to save her by taking her on a road trip.

Neil Gaiman
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. I mean everybody. All of the people in the whole world, I mean everybody — no matter how dull and boring they are on the outside. Inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds... Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe.”
Neil Gaiman, A Game of You

Albert Camus
“Real generosity towards the future lies in giving all to the present.”
Albert Camus, Notebooks 1935-1942

Arundhati Roy
“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”
Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living

George Saunders
“Don't be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end, amen.”
George Saunders, The Braindead Megaphone

Dante Alighieri
“Remember tonight... for it is the beginning of always”
