Lauren C. Mayher



My name is Lauren C. Mayher and I am the author of The Legend of Darien: A Hero Rises. I graduated from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey in New Brunswick with a B.A. in Communication and Psychology. I currently reside in southern New Jersey right outside of Philadelphia.

I started writing A Hero Rises in my senior year of college and finished up the following fall. I will have three other books in this series that follows the adventures of Darien the Dragonslayer.

I am also a HUGE Star Wars fan and the original trilogy was one of the first experiences that made me want to be a writer and creator of a new world. If you are familiar with the movies, you might be able to see their influences in my work.

Please do not hesistate to contact me if you have any questions or wish to talk! I would love to hear from you!
