Hello, and welcome!
My name is Lara Henerson, and in addition to being the name of a website, I am also a person. Surprise! As to which type of person, let me elaborate: primarily, I see myself as 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. It’s a comedic urban fantasy about some possessed antiques, 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 love lists.
-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.
