About Me

Lauryn Trimmer


Owner and Founder

My name is Lauryn Trimmer, and I love telling stories.

When I started my first blog ten years ago, I wanted to write about books. And that passion stuck with me. Now, I’m a writer and storyteller, working with everything from nonfiction to novels to poetry.

When I’m not working on my latest project, you can find me researching random facts on the internet. You can also find me eating mac and cheese in my kitchen at 2 AM, crying over the deaths of fictional characters.

You can also follow me on Twitter for more writer-ly things: @LaurynTrimmer

Thanks for stopping by!
