Lauren was born and raised in Birmingham, UK to parents Jayne and Tony, and she has one younger brother called Sam. Raised a Catholic, Lauren renounced her faith after she left full time education and following many years of questioning her own beliefs, she now identifies as pagan.

While many of her hobbies and interests lay in the creative arts, Lauren’s career through her twenties took an academic turn. During her eight years as an insurance broker, she won a scholarship to obtain her CII Diploma in Insurance, won the Insurance Institute of Cambridge’s Young Achiever of the Year 2016 award, and was a runner up for the BIBA Young Broker of the Year 2017 award.

Lauren currently lives in East Hertfordshire with her wife Kristy-Ellen, and their three dogs Lexi, Louis, and Mable. When she isn’t writing, she tours South East England as a singer, performs with her local theatre company, and dabbles in makeup artistry.
