Lauren Patzer crafted thirteen stories in everyday settings as well as fantasy and dystopian fiction sure to make you think about the human condition. Take the plunge into ice cold realities written to entertain, tantalize, and maybe even horrify.Blue Forge Press used a light editorial hand to allow the writer’s voice to be heard in its original state: Undiluted, unaltered, and raw.
