  3. You’d be surprised to know that Cam’s character is actually based on her real-life husband!
  4. Lauren started writing fiction stories at the young age of 17. This proves that it’s never too early to start making a name for yourself.
  5. Although her books are usually compared with the Twilight series, she believes that the famous Twilight series author Stephenie Meyer started a wonderful thing regarding the sudden influx of teen romances in the paranormal genre. She’s very grateful that Meyer was able to open a lot of possibilities and was able to introduce a new world where readers can stretch their imagination to the fullest.
  6. Her main goal before was just to have a book published. She never expected that after the publication, her work would be a great success internationally. She humbly says that everything that came after that was just the gravy on top.
  7. She tries to live her life as open as possible, and she advises her fans to do the same.
  8. Two words: Passion and Rapture. These are the two books that will complete the Fallen series. The 3rd book is set to come out in June 2011!
  9. Her first book of the series, Fallen, will soon be seen on the big screen! It will be released in 2012.
  10. She ends the interview by advising readers, writers, and basically everyone to “Experience as much, as wildly as you possibly can. Read as many books as you can (in many different areas as you can) and make the entire world your inspiration.”
