A Q&A with Lauren…

Which 3 words would people use to describe you?
Quirky, spirited and sassy!

What inspired you to write for children?
I’ve found that yoga is a practice that allows me to stop taking myself too seriously. I’m a big kid at heart, a walking cartoon with a penchant for joy, laughter and love, and this is the medium where that can be expressed with ease and delight.

Where does Mula the tiger’s name come from?
Every character is based on one of the chakras. In fact, all the characters are named after the chakra they are based on. For example, Mula is named after the root chakra, which in Sanskrit is “Muladhara.”

What do you like to do, besides writing?
I teach yoga to adults and children in NYC, and I love to sing, cook and travel!

If anyone wants to say hello, where can they find you?
You can find me on Instagram and Twitter and Facebook.
