Lauren Miller wrote her debut, PARALLEL while on maternity leave
from her law firm job and blogged about it, an experiment she called
"embracing the detour" (also the name of her blog). Many people told her
she was crazy. When she realized they were right, she told no one and
kept writing. Her second novel, FREE TO FALL, was nominated for YALSA's
2015 Best Fiction for Young Adults reading list.
Born in NYC and raised in Atlanta, Lauren now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.
