Hello! My name is Lauren Zurcher. I was born in Boston, Massachusetts and moved to Denver, Colorado when I was a kindergartner. I attended a bilingual elementary school where classes were taught in both English and French. I began my journey as a lifelong writer at the age of six when I wrote about family vacations across the world in my journal. The geography, peoples, fauna, and cultures I experience are the source of my inspiration. I wish to share those treasured moments with others through my creativity.

When I am not writing or drawing, I enjoy spending time traveling and exploring the outdoors. I am also an avid environmental activist and have adopted the motto “reduce, reuse, recycle” which I try to put into practice with every action I take. I graduated in three years from the University of Denver with a double major in Media Studies and French, as well as a minor in Marketing. In 2019, I spent a semester in Aix-en-Provence, France, where I became an expert in almond croissants. The colors, history, and art that flourish in the South of France solidified my passion for writing and drawing.
