Hello and a very warm welcome to my site.

I’m Lauren Chater, an aspiring author, a keen reader and lover of all things historical. I have been writing for many years and have been published in journals and online forums. I love crafting stories which resonate with themes which are important to me and I’m particularly interested in how women have been treated throughout history and how they have overcome the world’s perception of their abilities to achieve remarkable things.

I’m currently working on my first novel, The Wolf Shawl, a historical fiction novel set in WW2 Estonia about the power of female friendship. If you would like to find out more, visit my Projects page.

Apart from my writing interests, I am a passionate baker and cookie decorator. I run a blog over at, where I review books and bake cookies inspired by them.  

Thanks for stopping by!
