About Me

My name is Lauren.  I live in Northern California. I am currently an intellectual property litigation paralegal. I studied at Santa Clara University and graduated with a major in history and classics.

I think I inherited my love for reading from my mom who always would be the first to read me a book late at night or would hand me the next one to read. I never go anywhere without a book (and now my ipad).

Other than loving to read and write I love watching movies and traveling. I am willing to give most genres a try but I have been smitten lately with Y.A. and fantasy and there will ALWAYS be a place in my heart for romance!

I am the year of the Tiger and it is true, I am a total romantic!!!!

  1. Hi Lauren, I saw your post in Book Blogs and came her to follow your site then I got involved in spending some time here and just about your bio.
    My hubby went to Santa Clara Law School and worked up in the Bay Area before we moved to Southern Calif (at NASA). And, I'm an NP - I also did some work in the infirmary there with the Jesuits. Small world. :-)

    Now I'm switching gears and would love for you to have a look at my book to see it it interests you for a read, review, feature. Here's a link for my blog (which I'd love for you to follow back also).
    The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap is a historical fiction that takes place in 1895 after the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde and the impact his sentencing has on a small Nevada town. Here are some links for you to have a look at to see if it interests you. All my profits are going to animal rescue fyi.
