About Me

Dear Reader:

I’m so glad you stopped by! Let me introduce myself:

My name is Lauren (in honor of Lauren Bacall). After earning a BA in Professional Writing and an MA in English and American Literature, I think I can fairly label myself a “lit nerd.”

But like all people, I’m many things at once: A lit nerd and writer. A swimmer and surfer. A displaced Texan. The wife of a member of the U.S. Foreign Service. A hobby watercolorist. A hibernophile.

Thus, you’re likely to run into a mishmash of things on this blog: book reviews and writing-related thoughts, musings and travelogues.

In A Room of One’s Own, Virginia Woolf’s excellent treatise on women writers, she argues that in order to produce good literary work, women need, well, a room of their own. A place of quiet, meditative intimacy. This blog will be that “room of my own.”

But I’ll be happy for your company any time you stop by!

Cheers,

blog-signature
