Hi. I’m Lauren. I live in Maryland with my cat, and toughest critic, Mocha. My writing often puts her to sleep. I was an English teacher for eight years in both middle and high school, but resigned in the summer of 2016. In April of 2018, I started teaching English online with VIPKID, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

As far as writing, I have a manuscript I’m hoping to get published–once I find an agent. And once I convince myself it’s finished. One day.

Besides writing and teaching, I love chocolate, cats, the sound of rain, coffee with too much creamer, sleeping in, ’90s nostalgia, pumpkins, Tim Gunn, and the Oxford Comma.

I’m not a fan of alarm clocks, tomatoes, due dates, egos, mosquitos, bullies, country music, and bad memories.

I don’t have cable, but I like to binge shows on Netflix. For current shows, I’m into This is Us and Better Call Saul. And I watch way too many YouTube videos.

If you’d like to know more about me, just read my blog, leave a comment, send me a message, and/or check out these random facts about me. You can also find me on Twitter: @laurenseewrites
