Author Info

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 when it comes to actual danger, I’m timid.  I must be an armchair adventure hound since I’m drawn to suspense, intrigue, and action when it comes to reading, writing, and film.

I spent my childhood in Milwaukie, Oregon and I’m a graduate of both Oregon State University and Portland State University with degrees in education.  I’ve been passionate about reading my whole life, but my professional writing is a more recent adventure.  For my sons and my students, I wrote The Secret Watchers series.  I do plan to revisit the children’s book I began back in 2003 and the fantasy novel I started back in 1990 when I was a student at Oregon State.  There are also two different middle-grade stories in various stages of completion waiting for my attention.  Writing for young people is a perfect fit. I love to teach young people and I am, after all, a big kid at heart. I still brainstorm with my boys who have grown into adults during my writing career.

When I’m not writing, I can be found spending time with my family, working with students, reading, gardening, baking, or hiking around Mt. Hood, the Columbia River Gorge or the Oregon Coast with my camera.

Some of my favorite reads over the years have been:  Nancy Drew, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, Victoria Laurie’s Ghost Hunters and Abby Cooper Psychic Eye, cozy mysteries, Little House on the Prairie, Dragonlance, Heralds of Valdemar, and Alex Rider.  All of these have had their part in inspiring me to write and publish The Secret Watchers series and my future works.  My wish is that readers have nearly as much fun reading them as I’ve had writing them.  If you’re from the Pacific Northwest, you may recognize several of the locations that Owen and some of my other characters visit.
