About the Author

Lauren Winder Farnsworth was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. She is an avid reader, a chocolate enthusiast, and a CPA with a slight alternative music obsession and dreams of one day becoming a gourmet chef. She obtained bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Accounting from the University of Utah, went to work as a financial statement auditor, and then decided that since creative accounting wasn’t an option, creative writing would have to do. As a nice compromise, accountants tend to crop up in her stories (since she believes they’re shockingly under-represented in literature anyway). Having obtained two degrees from the same institution has made Lauren somewhat of a compound collegiate fan, and the only entity that holds more of her heart than the University of Utah is her hunky husband, Bryan. Lauren currently lives in South Jordan, Utah, where she spends entirely too much time watching Gilmore Girls and looking for excuses not to clean.

    Hi Lauren! I am a retired librarian (I worked for Salt Lake County Library for 31 years) and met you several years ago at an author event. I bought Keeping Kate, but to my chagrin, didn’t get around to reading it until this week (mea culpa!), I am really enjoying it and will definitely check out your other novels from the library, Do you still live in South Jordan and will you be doing any author events anytime in the near future? I didn’t see anything listed on your page, but as I also live in SoJo, I was hoping you might be somewhere nearby soon.

    Good luck in your future writing efforts!

      Hi Ruby!

      Thanks so much for the kind note. I do still live in South Jordan, but I don’t have any author events planned for the near future. My last book came out in 2017 and I haven’t done much since then, just mostly due to the whirlwind that is life. I’m hoping to be able to get back into my writing sometime soon, but I’m expecting my first baby here in the next couple of months, so that may be wishful thinking. 🙂

      I really hope you enjoy my other books if you get around to reading them. I appreciate you taking the time, it truly is an honor to hear that people bother to read anything I write. Thanks again for your note, and have a wonderful weekend!
