Family legend has it that the first time Lauren read anything, she was two and a half, and that it was the headlines of the New York Times. Implausible? Perhaps. But she's notorious in the city of Danbury for reading while walking — outside — so perhaps the legend has merit. The world got its first inkling that Lauren was going to be a professional writer when she was 12 years old. Her poem, which began, "When we made love, I felt I was on fire," terrified the teachers in her private school, but they agreed she had a weird talent. Lauren graduated from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelors degree in psychology, which she did absolutely nothing with, other than psychoanalyze her friends and family. Having been a donut salesperson during college, she then became a bookseller for 11 years, a book reviewer, a freelance editor and writer and a sort-of librarian. In 1999, having been married for 10 years and having been sure she would never be pregnant, Lauren became pregnant. While home sick the first two months, the thought occurred to her: What if some insane person was making up all of these symptoms — the whole pregnancy, even? Thus was born The Thin Pink Line, a novel about a woman who makes the whole thing up. As Lauren so delicately puts it, "One trip to the bathroom with a pregnancy wand and I came out with two miracles: a book and Jackie." Lauren still lives with her husband and daughter in Danbury, Connecticut, where she still writes and still reads.
