Laren writes fiction, non-fiction, plays and fairy tales. She is the author of three books—the cult classic novel, Pluto, Animal Lover, a finalist for the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Award and recently optioned by actor Robin Wright, Bohemian Manifesto, A Field Guide to Living on the Edge and The Bombshell Manual of Style, pivotal in exploding Bombshell consciousness into a popular genre.
Laren is a fellow of Yaddo and Hawthornden Castle and has received the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation grant for fiction and the Dana Award.
"Pluto, Animal Lover creates its own universe with its own peculiar magnetism. It’s like Evelyn Waugh meets Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer. It made my hair stand on end."
—John Patrick Shanley
“Reading Laren Stover is not simply an engagement of the senses. It is a seduction of the senses—transporting you to the magical and softly illuminating place whence she writes.”
— Nick Tosches
“Laren Stover catalogs...realities with accuracy, sympathy and intoxicating charm.”
— Tom Robbins
