Lauren is a writer, writing coach, and an INFJ. She also wrote the book The INFJ Writer, Firefly Magic and The INFJ Revolution, books for intuitive introverts, HSPs, empaths and all other sensitive, struggling artists | Lauren's website


"After a heartbreaking experience in college when a creative writing professor told me that I should โ€œgive up writingโ€ and find something to do at which I might actually be successful, I stopped writing for seven years. It was only when I stumbled upon an unconventional writing group based on the format of Alcoholics Anonymous that I started writing again and discovered my own creative gifts."
