Tropical Leaves

Hi! I'm Lauren. I love writing horror, literary fiction and poetry. I will talk about music until you make snoring sounds or walk away. Seriously. I'd put music on my website if I wasn't 100% sure it would make you jump and you'd hate me (I am a horrible people pleaser so if you hated me I could feel it from miles away). I live in a suburb sort of near Chicago with my spouse and two kids.

Currently, I'm seeking representation for my debut horror novel, Kill Radio. I'm a (new) member of the Horror Writers Association, too. I've had short fiction published in In Somnio, a modern gothic horror anthology and Beyond the Levee and other Ghostly Tales edited by Peter Talley. Check out the publications tab for more work I've had published!
