Lauren worked in communications and as a freelance writer for several years. With a passion for storytelling in rhyme and a desire to capture emotive themes, it was the whirlwind of 2020 that inspired her to write. "Somewhere amongst the chaos of 2020 I found myself without work and heavily pregnant after a long and gruelling journey with IVF. I wanted to write something that captured the emotions of a year so strange but also special for many families... because beautiful, magical things did still manage to find a place in 2020. I hope my book serves as a way of remembering that."
