This is Lauren’s first fiction publication. She is an award-winning theatremaker whose plays have been produced in New York and developed throughout the US. Critics have praised her work as “exquisite” and “a fine balance between laugh-out-loud absurdity and gut-wrenching human drama.” Upcoming highlights include a Chicago reading of her play Every Waiting Heart in Artemisia’s 2018 Fall Festival and three monologues from her play The Reckless Season featured in the 2018 Best Stage Monologues book series (Smith & Kraus). She is currently studying for her MFA at the University of Arkansas. Find out more about her work at www.laurenferebee.com.
