Lauren's new novel, THE GRIMOIRE OF KENSINGTON MARKET has been called "timely and important" by the TORONTO STAR and "A book that can change you... an enchantment, a forgiveness, and an entertainment" by the TEMZ REVIEW. It was also listed as one of the books sure to make a splash this year by CBC BOOKS, THE 49TH SHELF, THE TORONTO STAR and THE QUILL AND QUIRE.

She is also the author of AGAINST A DARKENING SKY, called "captivating and entertaining" by the Winnipeg Free Press, and Pulitzer Prize-Winner author Robert Olen Butler said, "Lauren B. Davis's Against a Darkening Sky brilliantly achieves the ideal for a historical novel: period and milieu seem utterly inextricable from character and theme, and together they illuminate timeless and universal truths of the human condition. Seventh-century England is fascinating. Wilona is achingly real. Her quest for an identity and a place in the world are richly resonant. Davis is a remarkable writer."

Her previous novel, THE EMPTY ROOM, published by Harper Collins Canada in May, 2013 was named one of the best books of the year by Amazon.ca, The National Post, Halifax's The Coast and the Winnipeg Free Press.

OUR DAILY BREAD, was longlisted for the 2012 Scotiabank Giller Prize, named as one of the "Very Best Books of 2011" by The Globe & Mail and The Boston Globe, and earned a starred review in the industry publication "Quill & Quire". Her first novel, THE STUBBORN SEASON, was a national bestseller and named as one of the Top 15 Bestselling First Novels by Amazon.ca and Books in Canada. It was also chosen by Robert Adams for his prestigious 2003-2004 book review series. Her second novel, THE RADIANT CITY, was a finalist for the Rogers Writers Trust Fiction Award. She has also published two collections of short stories, AN UNREHEARSED DESIRE (longlisted for the Relit Award) and RAT MEDICINE & OTHER UNLIKELY CURATIVES.

Lauren B. Davis was born in Montreal and lived in France for ten years from 1994-2004. She now lives in Princeton, New Jersey with her husband, Ron, and her dog, Bailey, known as the Rescuepoo.
