Lauren joined TriadaUS in July 2016, having worked in children’s scouting and as a freelance editor. Her focus has been on building her client list, so she spends most of her time reading submissions, meeting with editors, and pitching projects! In fact, her first sale was finally announced earlier this month—a YA Fantasy entitled The Weight of Worlds by Laura E. Weymouth, which sold at auction to Harper Teen and has already been picked up by publishers in France and the UK.
