Lauren Lang was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia. Her childhood to teenage year, besides went to school like most children do, was revolved heavily on playing tennis. Her mother who is a former Indonesian tennis player and now a tennis coach taught her how to play tennis competitively.
Growing up, she thought she’d be a tennis pro like Sharapova and Serena alike. Without she realized at the time, her spare time mostly consumed by her writing stories.
She played college tennis at Lewis-Clark State College majored in English in Creative Writing, without knowing what she actually would do with that major besides the fact that she just loves writing. And so, she decided to keep on pursuing writing as she’s taking her MFA in Writing & Publishing at Vermont College of Fine Arts.
