I’m a mom to two amazing little humans, a wife to a supportive husband, and a civil engineer.

Oh, and I write children’s books filled with whimsy, heart, laughter, & science!

Meet Lauren

In Ottawa, Canada, with my husband, two kids, and our 70-pound lap dog Frankie. My journey into writing and illustrating children’s books started during maternity leave. Inspired by daily forest hikes with my son, our adventures became “The Magical Forest,” my first book! Illustrated over 14+ months, it’s a tale aimed at helping children and parents rediscover the magic of childhood.
