Ghostwriter, book doula, and creative guide—ushering you over the threshold by way of the word.
When it’s time to give voice to what longs to be written—thought leadership, web copy, whitepapers, and more—I put words to your vision. I’m a literary and editoral ventriloquist, practiced in the art of delivering your best voice, wordsmithed.
I’ll meet you at the threshold with curiosity and piercing focus, and we’ll conjure language into the space between us and surface your voice into the world, from ether to form.
There's something magical that happens when you're with the right person...
Even as a writer, writing can feel daunting: forcing myself to sit down, waiting for the muse to come—all of the usual suspects are at hand. Collaborating with Lauren was a gift I didn’t know was possible. There’s something magical that happens when you’re with the right person who can drop with you into creative delight. With Lauren, I felt free of limiting thought loops and patterns about how hard writing is because we were in that liminal space, melting right into the creative process. Who knew writing brochure copy and an academic research paper could be pleasurable?!

I’ll support you from origin to delivery, concept to completion—or wherever you need to be met on your project journey.
WHITEPAPERS & EBOOKS
Downloadable assets help you establish yourself and/or your organization as a thought leader, generate leads, and add value for existing customers and subscribers. I’ll craft a long-form asset to help you meet your goals—and can partner with your design team to proof the final product.
Have a bigger story to tell, account to render, thread to pull through, or inquiry to follow? I help both first-time and seasoned storytellers surmount creative blocks, clarify their ideas, hone their craft, and birth their stories. Whether you need a full-time ghostwriter or a part-time co-creator, I’ll help shepherd your project from idea to accomplishment.
A blog is one of the most compelling and cost-effective ways to connect with an audience. It’s where you demonstrate expertise and authority, initiate engagement, and establish trust. If you don’t have your content calendar mapped out, I can support you in designing a strategy. And if you do? I’ll conduct interviews with subject-matter experts, repurpose longer-form content, and/or write net-new articles, so we can meet those calendar deadlines together.
CONTENT MARKETING STRATEGY
A comprehensive approach to content includes blog posts, social posts, email nurture campaigns, case studies, customer quotes, webinars, and more. Whether you’re launching your first content marketing progam, revamping what’s there, or simply trying to finish what you’ve started, I’ll perform competitive research, carry out a content audit, and collaborate with you on a content calendar.
EDITING & PROOFREADING
If you’re already writing your own content but could use some support with anything from idea development to grammar to style, I can show up to your project as editor or proofreader. As a former creative writing teacher and academic, I can evaluate drafts, dig deeper with you to craft more compelling prose, or be your extra set of eyes to catch misspellings, grammatical errors, or inelegant phrasing—all while adhering to whatever style manual you’re held to.
Book blurbs, poems, brochures, marketing quizzes, qualitative research articles, cookbooks… I haven’t done it all, but I’ve done a lot of it. If you’ve got something you’re working on in a genre that isn’t named here, get in touch anyway if something has called you to this place. We’ll explore it together and see if a collaboration reveals itself.
This might be your first time undertaking a significant writing project, but I've been here before—
Every such project is a deep journey; and whom you choose to collaborate with will determine the experience you have, and what emerges from that “third space” between you.
After 20 years of working as a writer and educator at the intersection of academia, technology, and contemplative practices, I bring a toolbox to the table that’s authentic, impeccable, meaningful, collaborative, and focused on mutual alignment.
My most recent work includes leading the content team at a Series-C technology firm, where I was brought on early to grow the content strategy from the ground-up; partnering with a nonprofit group to write a qualitative research paper on authentic movement as a healing practice; ghostwriting books and articles for thought leaders in their respective industries; and collaborating with individuals—artists, coaches, technologists—to clarify their purpose, their message, and their web copy.
All of this comes on the heels of earning a PhD in early modern British literature, where I taught Shakespeare and creative writing courses for nearly a decade and wrote my dissertation on the intersection of poetry and religion. I bring that reverence into every writing project I undertake, whether it’s about contemplative inquiries or business best practices. I sit in honor of what arrives in that third space between us—getting myself out of the way such that your voice emerges in its purest form.
I’ve been called a “literary doula” and a “creative usher.” And that dance of creativity—playing in the field with you—is my joy.
