About

My name is Lauren Smyth, and I'm a seventeen-year-old published author with a passion for writing, music, and adventure.

My two young adult novels, Stories of the Night and Made for Mercy, were published by Ambassador International and are available from Barnes & Noble, Amazon, etc. I'm also the lead writer for Achromia Games, the indie game studio that produced an intense action/adventure visual novel called OP9. When I'm not writing or coding, you can find me exploring the great outdoors with my camera.

Join me on my adventures through Instagram and Twitter @lsmythbooks and @lighttimepixels.
