The first rule of good writing is to love what you do! Of all the jobs I’ve ever had, writing is hands down the best. I put my heart and soul into what I do. I feel with my characters – I think about how somethings feels and I have my characters describe that for the reader. I have been known to write a scene based purely on what I’m feeling at the moment. If I go somewhere, then so do my characters. I try to describe what I see, smell, hear and sometimes even taste. If I can experience something and describe it well, then I can transport my readers to that place. When you love what you do, it shows. Writing is my adventure. Go out and discover what you love today!
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.View Archive →
