Lauren Hummel

Book Nerd. Writer. World Traveller. InDesign Ninja.

I am an avid reader and writer. In 2015, I left my job and packed all my belongings to travel Europe for a three-and-a-half months with my fiancé. I wrote about it on my travel blog therunawaycanadians.wordpress.com. Since then, I have returned to Europe twice (and solo), wrote a first draft of my manuscript, ran four 5k races, took up kickboxing, and read War and Peace (and hundreds of other books).
