Daughter of a Malaysian nuclear physicist father and an Australian doctor mother, Lauren Nicolle Taylor was expected to follow the science career path. For a while, that is exactly what she did, completing a Health Science degree with Honors in obstetrics and gynecology. However, there was always a niggling need to create.
Lauren married her high school sweetheart at twenty-four. They had their first child the following year. The next six years of her life were taken up with caring for her three children. She found out early on that being a parent could be as devastating as it was wonderful. Her first two children developed life-threatening conditions. Many surgeries and some very scary hospital stays later, Lauren’s third child was born and her parents cross their fingers and thank the gods that, so far, she hasn’t needed any life-saving surgery! Her son, eight, and two daughters, six and three, are now happy, mostly healthy, and extremely boisterous.
When Lauren hit her thirties and her children’s health problems began to settle, she started throwing herself into artistic endeavors, but was not entirely satisfied. The solution? Complete a massive renovation and sell their house so they could buy their dream block of land and build. After selling the house, buying the block, and getting the plans ready, the couple discovered they had been misled and the block was undevelopable. This left the family of five homeless.
Taken in by Lauren’s parents, with no home to renovate and faced with a stressful problem with no solution, Lauren found herself drawn to the computer. She sat down and poured all of her emotions and pent-up creative energy into writing The Woodlands.
Family, a multicultural background, and a dab of medical intrigue are all strong themes in her writing.
