Hi, I'm Lauren. I'm a sporadic writer... Okay, that's not completely true. I write often but I delete what I write almost as often because I can't find the right words. It's a curse, really.

I am a graduate student pursing a degree in Animal Biology. I recently obtained my B.S. in Biological Sciences, with minors in Interdisciplinary Sciences, Environment & Society, and Film Studies. I am particularly interested in genetics and evolution, and use fish as my study organism. (My mermaid story came long before I had interest in studying fish, so I suppose it was just meant to be.)

When I have free time, I like to read, write, paint, watch hockey, and listen to podcasts. I LOVE The Lord of the Rings, and can speak a little bit of Elvish (in addition to some Spanish and Italian). My reading preferences are all over the place, but fantasy, supernatural/paranormal, and romance are some of my favorite genres. (Well, and science nonfiction books, but I don't read that on Wattpad.)

Some random things I like: Books where the main character is a baker or chef. Foxes, dragons, and phoenixes. The word bittersweet.

Thanks for reading!
