Meet Lauren Cherelle, author of The Dawn of Nia and Accept the Unexpected.

Lauren Cherelle uses her time and talents to traverse imaginary and professional worlds. She manages and writes for Resolute Publishing, an indie publisher that helps transform dreams into realities for female writers. Her second novel, The Dawn of Nia, is about the sting of abandonment, the difficulty of forgiveness, and the grace of transformative love. Lauren has written short stories for Lez Talk: A Collection of Black Lesbian Short Fiction (2016) and G.R.I.T.S: Girls Raised in the South — An Anthology of Queer Womyn’s Voices & Their Allies (2013).

During the week, Lauren works in nonprofit development and administration. On weekends, she hangs up her fundraising hat to focus on developmental editing, graphic design projects, and personal writing. She resides in Louisville, KY with her partner of thirteen years. Together, they aspire to open a business incubator that houses a community-based mental wellness center that serves women and families.

Outside of reading, writing, and working, Lauren volunteers as a child advocate. She loves to visit new cities, binge watch her favorite shows, play in her curly hair, and teach women to explore and adore the power of intimacy.
