"This world is more than what our eyes see."

- Elliot Waters, Just Like Jane

About

About

Born and raised in the city of Melbourne, Australia, storytelling played a big role in Lauren's childhood.​

 

She grew up hearing recollections from her Maltese and Polish grandparents and their experiences during WWII in Europe. From living in Malta during heavy bombing to the struggles of abandoning the family farm in Poland and ending up in a POW camp in Syria, and the life changing decision to immigrate to Australia in the late 1950s. ​

 

Lauren’s writings explore contemporary themes, relatable on both a personal and world stage. Using intricate descriptions to explore the fragility of our existence in a world that is constantly changing, Lauren's writing unites human beings with the natural world, embracing respect and understanding.  ​​

 

In 2020, Lauren completed her novel Just Like Jane and in 2021 finished Valtna: Spirit of the Isles, a story set on the Valtna Isles which explores the lives of its residents and their connection to the land. She spent 2022 submerged in Aubrey’s life on Valtna, completing the trilogy's second instalment, Valtna: March of the Red Deer. Lauren is currently working on Valtna: Convergence of the Soul Existence, amongst other novels.
