The story goes like this—a few years ago, Lauren Dane decided to quit her job and stay home with her brand-new second child. As a result, she had lots of conversations in a sing-song voice but no real outlet for adult thoughts and words. While on bed rest during her pregnancy with the tiny monster, Lauren had plenty of downtime, so her husband brought home a second-hand laptop and she decided to "give that writing thing a serious go."
Lauren had no idea how fabulously wonderful it would feel to actually make a go of her writing and she's thankful every day people actually want to read what she writes! She's well aware of her good fortune and loves every moment of it—even when she has to edit and put Barbie's dresses back on over and over again. She still hasn't managed to figure out how to shut out the sound of the Backyardigans so she can write a love scene, though.
