Lauren Rosolino 

Adventurer. Restless wanderer. Ceaseless wonderer. Magic believer. Music reveler. Coffee drinker. Lover of words and books, the woods and walks.

Really, I’m just a girl in love with ideas &
I write stories about finding beauty in the brokenness.

Born and bred in Detroit, I grew up reading Harry Potter, watching Gilmore Girls, listening (and dancing) to a lot of music, and wondering why people do what they do. I graduated from Wayne State University with a BA in Psychology. And currently, want nothing more than to own an RV so I can go wherever my heart desires, whenever it so desires it.

I’m Clarice. No, not Clarice from The Silence of the Lambs. Clarice, as in Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’s girlfriend. You know the one who wears the red bow with white polka dots.

Coffee, tea, books, my dogs, my family, and teaching consume my life.

Growing up I was always reading, but at the age of 11 V.C. Andrew’s Flowers in the Attic created a book devourer (what was my mom thinking letting an 11 year old read a book about incest?). I consume books as if they give me life. Books are my comfort, joy, and even my best friends. I have a TBR pile as tall as I am. My library continues to grow because I refuse to let any book go, even if I hated it. Fantasy books are my jam. They allow me to escape from the monotony that can be my life at times. I still believe that one day a shadowhunter, or some other supernatural being, is going to show up in my life and my reading will have prepared me for this event. I am waiting for you Julian Blackthorn or Jacob Black (or both).

    Hi Lauren!!
    I love this pic of you, I miss this face more than you know. I can not wait to read your next masterpiece, Running to Stand Still!! I’m so proud of you and all your accomplishments. Tears are running down my face as I write this because of the woman you have become, beautiful….love and miss you

    • Jackie! I don’t even know how to respond to this! All I can say is that I can never thank you enough for your presence and love in my life. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be this woman I’ve become if it wasn’t for you. I still think about you and Chels all the time, and all the cumulative years I’ve spent at your house! haha! You mean so, so much to me. The whole world, in fact. Love and miss you too! <3
