If you want to meet me, here are a few events I’m going to be appearing at:

July 28th-30th: YALC – Details to come, Tickets available here.

August 28th : ‘To the end of time’ panel with Philip Reeve,  Edinburgh Book Festival, 1.30pm – Tickets available to (primarily Scottish students) here.

Lauren James and Philip Reeve take you on an incredible journey of imagination involving extraordinary beings, complex characters, thrills and thoughtful moments. Both authors have created stunning sci-fi novels that explore time, space, love, loneliness and the end of the universe. Join them on an intergalactic adventure exploring everyday human emotions.

School or library visits can be arranged through Authors Aloud by emailing or phoning 01727 893992. I’m always happy to do events in person or on Skype. For more information visit my profile here.

Available talks:

‘My writing journey’ presentation – follow my experience of writing my first book at the age of 16 from first draft to publication, with images of my original writing.
‘World-building’ writing workshop – using senses to create atmosphere and setting, with examples taken from writing I did at the age of 18, which later became part of my debut novel.
