Hi! I'm Lauren.

I'm an author, story coach, & entrepreneur.

You might have seen me on Good Morning America, keynoting at a conference, or in the pages of popular magazines like Vice, Huffington Post, and Glamour.

Or maybe you heard me on your favorite podcast talking about the transformational power of storytelling.

Whatever brought you here, welcome to my home on the Internet! I’m glad to have you. Before you go any further, I should warn you that if you hang out here long enough, I’ll convince you to take more naps, eat more snacks, and Write Your Friggin’ Book Already®.

If that sounds great to you, you’re in the right place.

Everyone has a story. What's yours?

I am also the founder of School for Writers™. We help aspiring authors write, edit, and publish their books.

With decades of experience behind us, we know how to get that story out of your head and out into the world.

We’re here for the busy entrepreneurial moms, the exhausted activists working that side hustle, and the creatively curious who are struggling to find time to write.

We’re here to help amplify the voices of those who have been silenced and to demystify the lie you’ve been told about whose story matters.

Because the world needs your story now more than ever.

Because Fat Girl

Coming October 2024 on Amara, an imprint of Entangled Publishing

What are you not willing to give up in the name of fame? Diana Smith finds out for herself in BECAUSE FAT GIRL by Lauren Marie Fleming, a contemporary queer romance novel with a twist on the typical coming out story, featuring a bold ensemble cast that defy the odds to make their own Hollywood fairytale ending.

Your world is defined by the stories you tell.​

The value you give yourself, the love you have for others, the money you make – everything in your life is influenced by a story.

Whether it’s a societal story that oppresses some voices and amplifies others, or a personal story you’ve created for yourself, stories hold power in your life.

I’m here to help you tell a better story, one that reduces shame and empowers you to proudly be your most authentic self. One that helps you make more money, take more time off, and have more joy.

And we’re going to do that by harnessing this magical tool we have called writing.
