Lauren is an artist— a curator of words, textiles, and movement.

Her fiction, literary criticism, creative non-fiction, and poetry has appeared in or is forthcoming with publications such as Asymptote, The Maine Review, The Rupture, Cosmos Book Club, and My French Life Magazine.

Born in the Midwest to a Taiwanese mother and a White American father, she has long been fascinated by both the divisions and the sameness that exists between cultures. That interest has led to a life-long exploration of both global and local cultures, through writing, art-making, traveling, and of course, a lot of adventurous eating. She resides in Saint Louis, Missouri, with her husband and four bunnies.
