Guest: Lauren DeDroog

We are proud to announce our next guest, Lauren DeDroog:

Growing up in the countryside of Belgium, Lauren always dreamed of writing books and devouring fantasy and romantasy stories, as well as mythology. If you had a weird mummy or Greek mythology obsessed kid in your class, chances are you sat next to her. If so, you may be eligible for compensation. Reach out to your attorney.

Figuring that a degree in languages, history or writing wouldn’t fare well in this capitalistic world, she got a bachelor’s in nursing and became an ICU nurse instead. Funnily enough, the COVID pandemic was the final push she needed to actually start writing – as a form of escapism and coping. Since then, she’s crafted complex fantasies about the after waves of revenge, villains and how everything we know is only a mosaic of perspectives glued together to create a grand story. With a dash of spice and sapphic yearning.

In October 2022, she debuted with her English fantasy ‘A Curse of Crows’ in her home country with native publisher Hamley Books, and a mere month later, signed with Gollancz for a worldwide release of a re-edited and revised edition, set to release in September 2024.
