Lauren goes by the pen name L.T. Shade and lives in Miami, FL. She loves black coffee and sexy heroes. Not exactly in that order. Nothing makes Lauren happier than writing, or reading, about strong and capable heroines and their happily ever afters.

When she’s not writing, she spends her time reading, overdosing on Cuban coffee, interning as a book publicist and hanging out with her amazing family and her American Cocker Spaniel, Princess Albie.

With a deep-rooted love for the anti-hero, she loves all things dark and twisted. That includes creepy crawlies and unreliable narrators. Her favorite genres are psychological suspense/thriller with a dash of romance. In the future, she hopes to delve into YA, specifically magical realism, urban fantasy, and science fiction.

Her debut erotic romance novel, Under Her Authority, is available at Bonnier publishing, Totally Bound. Check out the books page for more information.
