Lauren’s passion for reading and writing began as a child, and brought her to the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, where she started her career in writing, editing, and publishing over 12 years ago. Lauren has worked as a book editor, publishing consultant, and magazine columnist/editor, including a stint at a fashion magazine that was the basis for the film The Devil Wears Prada, and an international travel publication company. Over the past decade, she has also established a following as a music journalist, and traveled throughout Europe, Vietnam, Taiwan, The Virgin Islands, and Cambodia, making her open to several cultures, ideas and editorial styles.

Her love for the art of writing and book publishing propelled her career as a book editor and publishing consultant, and she founded Midnight Publishing in 2009, an editorial company focused on helping authors publish positive, influential and inspirational novels, memoirs, and non-fiction content. It is through serendipity and a drive to deliver thought-provoking and inspirational literature to society that brought Lauren to SparkPoint Studios. She met with founder Crystal Patriarche to discuss collaborative opportunities between their two companies, and was enthralled with the concept and brand. Within a few months, she joined the team as Editorial Manager, helping to oversee a rapidly growing catalog of award-winning novels, memoirs, and non-fiction titles through She Writes Press and SparkPress.
