The puppets lie dormant, strings loose and untethered to a puppeteer. But there is life in these walls. Strange things, bizarre things, fantastic things are lying in wait for you.

Lauren Miller wrote her debut, PARALLEL while on maternity leave from her law firm job and blogged about it, an experiment she called “embracing the detour” (also the name of her blog).

Her latest novel is a stand-alone called Raven’s Daughter.
