Hello! My name is Lauren Tate and I am an up-and-coming author from the city of Detroit. I am a University of Michigan alumna. My first book—a small collection of poems "Fragments of a Full Memory" was self-published on Amazon in 2019. I have written my second book— a collection of short stories titled "Hair Me Now!" that is available to purchase on Amazon (2022).
My work mostly focuses on the stories of girls and women, especially those of color. Lack of representation in literature and on-screen inspires me to tell stories of brown girls and women and people of color— through novels, short stories, and poetry. It excites and challenges me to write everyday stories that are "othered" by society, to create a safe space for those in my community.
