Prior to joining Lucinda Literary, Lauren was an associate editor at Pen and Press, a writing and consultancy company, and a member of the editorial team at Flatiron Books, where she acquired The Unseen Body, by Dr. Jonathan Reisman, and edited What Is a Dog?, by Chloe Shaw, El Jefe, by Alan Feuer, and New York Times bestseller The Lincoln Conspiracy, by Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch.
Lauren is looking for upmarket and literary fiction, psychological thrillers, voicey memoirs and essay collections, and select YA with a focus on underrepresented voices. She's drawn to family sagas, stories with dark themes, and powerful narratives that encourage readers to confront difficult topics and realities.
Some of her favorite published titles include In The Dream House, Priestdaddy, No One Asked For This, My Dark Vanessa, The Other Black Girl, and Mexican Gothic.
