1) What is your favorite film? Jerry Maguire

2) Any movie that you really want to see? Bumblebee

3) Please tell me about your novel.  “The Hourglass” is about a character by the name of Jake Trust.  In college, he was the captain of the basketball team and very popular.  However, as soon as he graduated he has a regular office job like everybody else.  Out of frustration he reaches out to his best friend Josh and asked him to gamble with him.  If they WIN they can save their money and figure out what else they can do with their lives.  If they lose at least they gave it a shot.  Jake had no idea that Josh used to have a gambling problem. 

4) Which is your favorite character in your book and why?  Jake Trust is my favorite character in my book because he has a big heart and all these great ideas but he also feels stuck at a job that doesn’t appreciate him.  He takes a lot of risks and it can hurt or help a lot of people depending on what happens from his choices.  To carry that burden and take those chances for the better good of him and his friends makes him my favorite character.

5) How did you come up with the Title?  This is a quote of mine in the book that answers why I came up with the Title The Hourglass. “Hey, mom the hour’s over, look at the hourglass!” She smiled.  “Very smart son, and remember you’ll never get that hour back.  Don’t waste your time being angry at the little things.  Don’t wait to enjoy your life.  Do it now.  Pretend there’s an Hourglass.  That way you’ll have no regrets.”

6) How long did it take you to write this book?  About a year and a half.

7) What is your favorite motivational phrase?    “The Journey of 1,000 miles starts with a single step!” -Lao Tzu


By Lauren Lynne, author

I’m author Lauren Lynne. The good side of growing up is that you can write whatever you want. The downside... now I can’t read it without my glasses! I have the soul of an adventurer but the heart of a coward when it comes to danger, yet I’m drawn to all things action-adventure, so this particular genre was a natural fit. You won’t find me bungee jumping, cliff diving or doing parkour because, well... I’m a klutz… so I write it. Think of me as an armchair adventure hound. I create characters who are much braver, tougher, more graceful and athletic than I will ever be. When you dream, dream big!

I love working with students who have a thirst for knowledge. I write for young adults because they are the age group I most love to teach. I grew up in a house where reading was expected, anticipated and enjoyed. I want to pass that joy on to my students. I do not write alone, but pull in my boys for real life teenaged insight. I also listen to my students.

I am a native of the Pacific Northwest, with its vivid and varied panoramas. When I’m not writing, I can be found spending time with my family, working with students, reading, gardening or hiking around Mt. Hood, the Columbia River Gorge or the Oregon Coast with my camera. I am also a graduate of both Oregon State and Portland State universities with degrees in education and science. Writing is my passion and I want to share my love of it and reading with you.

Thanks for visiting! Tell me what you think!
