My name is Lauren and I run The Well-Read Cookie blog and website. I’m a girl who loves reading and loves baking cookies! Some of my favourite moments have been spent combining these two loves in one delicious session… Mmm.. Where was I?
As an aspiring fiction writer, I make it my mission to read as much and as widely as possible. This includes classics as well as modern contemporary works. My particular milieu is historical fiction (this is the genre I love working in) so many of my reads come from this area, but I also love murder mysteries, fantasy and a good old-fashioned romance.
I live in sunny Sydney with my husband and two young children. I have been baking for many, many years, but it is only recently that I have decided to give my baking a literary ‘twist’. My mission for the website is simple: each fortnight on my blog, I will present to you a cookie/s inspired by what I have been reading.
