Lauren DePino is a writer based in Los Angeles. She's written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, BBC, Longreads, New York Magazine, Los Angeles Review of Books, Glamour, InStyle, Shondaland, and more.

 

Currently, she’s working on a memoir about heartbreak, love, and mortality.

 

Lauren is a songwriter. When she graduated from college, she used all her savings to make a demo of original songs. She’s still writing music, in hopes that one day, her songs will play in a Disney movie and on the radio.

 

She is an actress who got her SAG card when she stood in for Zooey Deschanel in M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening.

 

She is head writer for the Leapfrog Group, a company that provides communications for nonprofits.

 

People tell Lauren she’s the most gullible person they’ve met. She believes them.

 

Even though Lauren is afraid of goodbyes, she somehow knows that everything will be okay in the end.
