Get to Know Lauren Marie:
GGM: When and why did you begin writing?
Lauren Marie: I was about 12 years old. I had a neighbor that lived across the street from my family in Las Vegas, Nevada. She was four years older than me and she was writing stories for her English class in her high school. She wrote a really cool story about an evil black cat and I started to think it could be really fun to make up stories. I started scribbling out short stories at that time and the dream took off from there. Writing has been a bug ever since then.
GGM: Who encouraged you or what made you decide to write a novel and seek publication?
Lauren Marie: I spent many years trying to write the perfect thriller. I spent a lot of time wanting to become the next Le’Carre, Clancy or Turow, I decided to try my hand at paranormal romance. I have to admit I’ve never had so much fun. About seven years ago, I wrote my first story that had been simmering in my brain since the 1980’s. Then there were the two stories that originated from dreams I’d had that have become reality – Going to Another Place and Love’s Touch – Then and Now. I still have a couple of stories that started back in the 1980’s, but I’m trying contemporary romance right now.
GGM: Do we “see” some of you in your characters?
Lauren Marie: Yes, probably. A friend of mine, who has known me for over thirty years said she could hear my voice in the characters. I have some weird sayings that my dad used to say, like “Dog my cats” or “holy smokarolla’s”. I haven’t used those two, but never, say never.
