Hello, and welcome!
My name is Lara Henerson, and in addition to being the name of a website, I am also a person. As to which type of person, let me elaborate: primarily, I am a writer. I have a degree in Creative Writing from the University of Edinburgh, and I’ve been working on my first novel for a few years now. In between drafts, I also started a second, unrelated one. The first is an upmarket literary novel with paranormal elements centered around enchanted objects and fog. The second is a little more psychological, a little more dark. It deals with the theme of the self, uncertainty of the future, and the pain of being human. Both are set in my home city of San Francisco.
I’m also a freelancer and ESL teacher. My latest freelance gig has me writing weekly scripts for a Univision network show called “The World is Yours”. I also translate social media posts for CIC Media, and write and copyedit articles for a midwestern real estate company.
When I’m not writing, I’m pursuing other creative endeavors, like performing improv in various troupes, making silly short films with friends, and reading a ton of fiction.
Here are other random facts about me, in no particular order.
-I have lived in California, France, Quebec, Scotland, England and Venezuela. I speak fluent French and proficient Spanish.
-I have a golden retriever called Dobby, and she is actually the best sentient creature on this planet.
-I have a watercolor tattoo of the golden gate bridge on my arm. I am also strongly against stigmatizing people for having tattoos. (Or for any reason at all, really.)
-I love vintage fashion, polka dots, and fancy hats.
-I’m a proud feminist.
-I completed a summer creative writing program at Oxford University, which I found extremely beneficial.
-I love dressing up in costumes, and own far more corsets than are necessary in this day and age.
