About Lauren

Hi, hello, and merry salutations!

I am [Captain] Lauren Macrie*, an aspiring author of contemporary fiction, and I am thrilled that you found your way to my blog!

I started blogging in 2010 under the pseudonym E. Elle.  I called my cyber corner The Writer’s Funhouse and blogged about, well, writing.  At the time, I was also writing novels and working part-time as a server at a local steakhouse.  Three short months after starting my blog, I obtained full-time work and things got a lot more complicated.  I maintained my blog by the tips of my fingers, but writing itself quickly fell away.  My body recognized that it could not balance a 40-hour workweek with a 2:00 AM bedtime.  Eventually, blogging fell away, too.  I quietly exited the blogosphere in 2012.

I’ve made multiple forays back into the ‘sphere in the past several years, throwing a lot of proverbial poop against the accompanying fan.  In 2014, I resigned myself to the mediocre, middle class, workaday existence that my life was shaping into.  (Yep, I just ended a sentence with a preposition.  And I’m not sorry!**)

Life kicked into high gear in 2015.  It is now September 2, 2018, and things are different.***

I am different.****

And I’m so excited to be on this journey!

*Not really.  Lauren Macrie is a pseudonym.  And I am not a captain.  I don’t even own a boat.  Or a spaceship.

**I’m a little sorry.  Improper grammar irks me, especially when I’m the offender.

***In addition to working full-time, I also have a husband, a mortgage, and an IRA.

****I’m about forty pounds lighter, have more gray hairs, and think I’ve developed arthritis in my left knee.
