Lauren DeStefano was born in New Haven, Connecticut and has never traveled far from the east coast. She received a BA in English from Albertus Magnus College recently, and has been writing since childhood. She made her authorial debut by writing on the back of children’s menus at restaurants and filling up the notepads in her mom’s purse. Her very first manuscript was written on a yellow legal pad with red pen, and it was about a haunted shed that ate small children.

Now that she is all grown up (for the most part), she writes fiction for young adults. Her failed career aspirations include: world’s worst receptionist, coffee house barista, sympathetic tax collector, and English tutor. When she isn’t writing, she’s screaming obscenities at her Nintendo DS, freaking her cats out with the laser pen, or rescuing thrift store finds and reconstructing them into killer new outfits.

  1. Hi Lauren DeStefano,

    I’m a book reviewer for (over 100k hits), personal Portuguese Blog 60k hits). Both blogs are entirely dedicated to YA Books. I also write a column for MTV Brazil – USA Connection – (, where I talk about YA books releasing in the US.

    I’m very interested in reading your book. I don’t know if you would have an ARC/copy for someone like me. I’d like to review it and post it in all domains mentioned above.

    My address is:
    Livia Delgado
    4550 NW 18th Ave – apt PH7
    Pompano Beach, FL 33064

    Thank you very much for the opportunity.
