Lauren Puckett is a Missouri-born writer, editor and book reviewer. She frequently covers culture, literature, food, travel and health for outlets including 5280, Literary Hub, Apartment Therapy, The Writer, Shelf Awareness and others.
After earning bachelor's and master's degrees in journalism from the University of Missouri, she left the Midwest to pursue a career in writing. She now spends 99 percent of her time doing that, but if you can catch her away from her desk, you'll find her chasing down a good charcuterie board or dissecting superhero mythology. If you're trying to track her down in the virtual world, however, just try her Twitter @laurpuckett.
