Lauren lives with her cat, Sushi, who keeps her company when drawing.

Praise for The Fairytale Hairdresser and Beauty and the Beast

Kittie Lacey is the best hairdresser in all the land and she has wonderful fairytale adventures too. It's soon to be Prince Charming and Princess Cinderella's Ball, but Kittie faces a real challenge - can she make Beast lovable? Of course, this IS a fairytale, so you can be sure of a happy ending but it's quite different to the traditional tale. This is a lovely series, peopled on every page with a wondrous range of fairytale characters for children to spot, and with some very contemporary twists on the outcomes.
