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

                            -  Elliot Waters, Just Like Jane

Lauren Kucera


Lauren was born and raised in the city of Melbourne, Australia. The youngest of three siblings, her parents encouraged their children to practice what makes them happy in life. Lauren pursued music, starting her own business teaching singing and piano students, but always retained writing as a creative outlet, most notably in song lyrics, novels, poetry, and short stories.


Her writing aspirations are to 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. 

Lauren is currently working on her second novel and developing her creative writing skills through online courses.


In the picturesque coastal town of Abbotsbury, Elliot Waters, a mid-thirty bookshop owner, wants to experience something beyond the confines of her comfort zone, but is hindered by her struggle to accept change.


A spontaneous roll down a hill initiates a chance encounter with a curious handsome man, triggering a series of life-altering events. Encouraged to venture into the unknown, Elliot must learn to adapt if she wants to overcome the very fears that have kept her from the world.

A contemporary novel.
